A former Rutherford County Detention Center inmate released by a judge for medical reasons died Saturday at St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital.

Gwendolyn Bates Taylor, 57, of Murfreesboro, was being held on a domestic assault when she suffered from an apparent medical condition, said Public Information Officer Lisa Marchesoni.


She was hospitalized five days before she died.

As a standard procedure, the county coroner and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation were notified.

The coroner collected medical information regarding the inmate and delivered the information to the TBI for review. The coroner requested an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

Taylor would call WGNS on a regular basis. This call came in at 2 in the morning this past August...
