A Knox County Kentucky man who had been lodged at Pulaski County Detention Center has died.


Anthony Robert Skaggs, 33, of Gray, Kentucky, passed away at Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital at 10:56 p.m. Sept. 10, according to a news release from the Pulaski County Detention Center.


Skaggs had been booked into PCDC on last Thursday, September 5, after he was picked up by Burnside Police Department on a warrant accusing him of a parole violation. Online court records indicate that Skaggs had pleaded guilty in Knox County to second-degree possession of a controlled substance and second-degree promoting contraband in July 2018 and sentenced to 360 days in jail -- a sentence which was conditionally discharged for two years pending no further violations of law.


Around 11:14 p.m. Sept. 9, according to the PCDC release, Skaggs was transported by Somerset-Pulaski County EMS to LCRH for a medical issue. He was pronounced deceased the following night.


Skaggs' body has been transported to Frankfort for an autopsy.
