Man dies from medical complications in Cobb County Jail


The Cobb County Sheriff’s Office is conducting an investigation into the death of an inmate who passed away while in custody at the county jail. 

The inmate, Raymond Marti, aged 60, appeared to have experienced a medical seizure, as reported by the sheriff’s office. 

Immediate assistance was provided to Marti by both jail and medical staff, and he was subsequently transported to Wellstar Kennestone Regional Medical Center, where he passed away.

In his warrant, Marti had been arrested on April 16th on charges of possession of cocaine and impersonating a police officer. At the time of his arrest, he was found wearing a long-sleeved T-shirt with the word “police” printed on the sleeves, front, and back of the shirt. 

Additionally, Marti was allegedly in possession of a gun belt with a fake weapon, an outer bulletproof vest carrier, a taser, and a hat that read “police,” according to the warrant.

In light of this situation, the sheriff has requested the Georgia Bureau of Investigations (GBI) to conduct an inquiry into Marti’s death. The Cobb County medical examiner will perform an autopsy to determine the exact cause of his death.

In a press release, the Sheriff’s Office said, “Sheriff Craig Owens extends his condolences to Mr. Marti’s family and loved ones.”
