AVON PARK, Fla. (AP) - Officials say a 17-year-old boy died after collapsing at a Polk County juvenile detention facility.
A Polk County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman says John Kingcade
collapsed Monday night while playing basketball. Avon Park Youth
Academy staff performed CPR on the Ocala teen until paramedics
arrived. Kingcade was transported to a Sebring hospital, where he
was later pronounced dead.
Kingcade had been at the facility for more than a year. He had been convicted of cocaine trafficking.
The sheriff's spokeswoman says autopsy results are pending toxicology tests, but detectives do not suspect foul play.
