The Missouri State Highway Patrol has been asked to investigate after an inmate died over the weekend at the Laclede County jail in Lebanon. 

Sheriff David Millsap says Darrell Rogers, 33, was found unresponsive in his cell Saturday night, and died just before 8:00 p.m. 

Millsap says while he doesn't suspect foul play, he wants to ensure "absolute transparency" in the investigation. 

Rogers was booked into the jail on a bond violation less than two weeks ago.
