Columbia county Inmate Collapses, Dies
This morning, an inmate at the Columbia County Detention Facility collapsed in his cell while eating breakfast. Jail staff immediately began life saving measures, but he was not able to be revived
61-year old Nicholas Picklo III had arrived at The Columbia County Detention Facility several hours earlier, after being transported by a prisoner transport contractor from Parker County, Texas. Picklo was arrested in Texas on warrants from Columbia County. He was booked into CCDF on an active arrest warrant for a Violation of Probation. After going through the booking process, Picklo was placed into a holding cell with another inmate. While eating breakfast, Picklo collapsed in his cell at approximately 5:45 a.m. after suffering an apparent medical issue. Detention Facility staff attempted to revive Picklo utilizing an automatic electronic defibrillator and CPR.
According to the Coulumbia County Sheriff's Office, Picklo had not been involved in any physical confrontation with CCDF staff members or any other inmates, and there were no obvious signs of foul play. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is assisting the Columbia County Sheriff's Office in this investigation. Investigators are awaiting results from the Office of the Medical Examiner in Jacksonville, FL for a determination of the cause of death.
