He says the autopsy is complete, but the results are not available.

Tuesday, investigators continued to search for a cause in the death of an inmate housed in the Madison County Detention Center.

They were told he went into cardiac arrest and was brought to the Merit Health facility in Canton.

From there, he was transferred to Merit Health Central in Jackson.

Hill's family says they talked to administrators and they had no record of him as a patient.

Madison police say they initially arrested Hill for trespassing on Saturday, May 5.

It happened at the home of a former employer, who had called the police to report Hill was trespassing.  The homeowner said that Hill was an unstable, but dear friend of his that he had asked repeatedly not to come over. 

"We don't have any answers," said Hill's sister Katrina Nettles. "They didn't answer any questions. Yes we do want to know was it the police department's fault that caused him to go into cardiac arrest? I don't know, it's heartbreaking."

Investigators say they are still reviewing evidence in connection with Harvey Hill's death.

The Mississippi Bureau of Investigations is assisting in that investigation.
