Montano Dies in Orange County Jail Infirmary

Oct 20th, 2011 | Category: Orange County

An inmate at the Orange County Correctional Facility died Wednesday morning from undisclosed medical issues.

Robert Montano, 41, of Orange was pronounced dead by Justice of the Peace Derry Dunn after paramedics were unable to save him around 5 a.m., according to a news release from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

Montano was originally booked into the jail Oct. 7 on a charge of public intoxication and has been housed in the infirmary since then. Officers who arrested Montano believed he was under the influence of bath salts.

An autopsy has been ordered for Montano, and the Texas Rangers are assisting with the investigation.
