PORT ST. LUCIE, Florida An autopsy is scheduled for a St. Lucie County inmate who was found dead in the jail's medical wing.

Sheriff Ken Mascara says a nurse noticed that 58-year-old Allan
A. Harris of Port St. Lucie was not moving in his cell Sunday morning. Attempts to revive Harris were not successful.

Mascara says Harris apparently died of natural causes. An autopsy is planned Monday or Tuesday.

Fort Pierce police arrested Harris on Dec. 18 for trespassing.The sheriff's office says Harris was held in the jail's medical wing because of a "variety of known medical conditions."
