Deaths of two Gwinnett jail inmates under GBI investigation

By AccessWDUN staff

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is investigating the deaths of two inmates at the Gwinnett County Jail.

According to a statement from GBI spokeswoman Nelly Miles, the deceased inmates have been identified as Ian Longshore, 36, of Stone Mountain and Corey Bryant, 22, of Decatur.

According to a statement sent yesterday from a Gwinnett County Sheriff's Office spokesperson, the two were found unconscious on Monday. Longshore was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the GBI, and Bryant was taken to a local hospital where he later died.

The Sheriff's Office requested the GBI the same day. 

During a search of the two inmates' cell, GBI agents located a white powdery substance. The substance has been sent to the GBI crime lab for testing.
