PORTSMOUTH, Va. – An investigation that was launched after a 24-year-old died in the Hampton Roads Regional Jail is now complete.

The Commonwealth Attorney’s office announced Friday that the investigation into Jamycheal Mitchell’s death that occurred on August 19 is done.

The preliminary report from Virginia State Police along with results of additional investigative work have been received by the Commonwealth’s office.

The evidence is now being reviewed and a final prosecutorial answer will follow the review.

The Commonwealth’s Office did not say when the final determination will be released.

In September over 12 hours of footage from inside the jail was released.

On April 22, 2015, Mitchell was arrested and jailed for stealing $5 worth of food from a convenience store in Portsmouth.
