SHELBY COUNTY, AL - A Pinson man who was being held on a bond revocation in the Shelby County jail was found dead in his cell this morning.

Brandon Lee Hays, 27, was found unresponsive while employees were delivering breakfast around 4;45 a.m. today, according to the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office. He was determined to be dead at the scene.

Authorities say there was no obvious physical injury that would have caused Hays’ death, and he was in the cell by himself.

Hays was previously charged with first-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument and was being held without bond on a bond revocation.

The Alabama Bureau of Investigation is investigating the incident as a matter of policy.
