Investigators are saying no foul play is expected after officers in the Greene County, Tennessee Detention Center discovered an unresponsive inmate in his cell.

A sheriff's department spokesperson told News 5 that Robert Allen Belt, 39, was found just after 4:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon.

A correction's officer performed CPR on the inmate who was then transported to a hospital in Greeneville where he was pronounced dead. An autopsy has been ordered.

Belt was in jail after being charged with failure to appear on a theft between $1,000 and $10,000.
