CLINTON (WATE) – The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is investigating after an inmate jumped from the second floor balcony and later died at the Anderson County Jail.
Attorneys for Brian Jeffrey Seeber, 42, say he died late Thursday night, after the sheriff’s office said he jumped from the second floor tier in one of the housing units at the detention facility around 6:00 a.m.
Seeber is charged with multiple counts of rape and especially aggravated sexual exploitation.
His attorney Stephen Ross Johnson said he had been scheduled for a court hearing later in the day, but had entered a plea of not guilty. The hearing was to be about his bond amount and potential release from jail pending trial.
No other information is available at this time.
