Inmate Death in Scott County Jail

Scott County Sheriff's Office

A Davenport man has died in the Scott County Jail. Friday morning, guards found 27 year old Mark Hudson un-responsive in a cell and despite their efforts to revive him, he was pronounced dead.

The Scott County Sheriff's Office says the death does not appear to be suspicious but an autopsy will be conducted by the Iowa State Medical Examiner.

The investigation of Hudson's death will be handled by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation.

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
