Death Of 20 Year Old Inmate At McKean County Jail Under Investigation

No Sign of Foul Play
State Police at the Kane Station are investigating the death of a 20 year old inmate at the McKean County Jail Wednesday morning between 1:20 am and 5:08 am.

Robert W. Hearst, V, 20, of Kane, PA, was discovered deceased by a corrections officer during rounds. The initial investigation revealed no signs of foul play. The investigation is continuing and an autopsy is scheduled.

State Police were assisted by McKean County Coroner Mike Cahill, McKean County Sheriff's Department, and Priority Care EMS.

Robert Hearst was jailed on charges of aggravated assault, simple assault, harassment, robbery and theft by unlawful taking in connection with an incident on September 11 at Country Fair in Bradford that started as a dispute over $160.

Court records indicate that Hearst shoved Cody Fowler to the ground and repeatedly punched him in the face, causing injuries. He then slammed Fowler's head on the concrete until Fowler lost consciousness.

District Judge Dominic Cercone set bail at $30,000. straight bail on 9-11-09 and Hearst was sent to McKean County Jail. At a hearing on 9-23-09, bail was reduced to 10% bail, which would have required him to post $3,000. but Hearst remained in jail after not being able to post bail. Hearst's next court date had been scheduled for 1-7-2010 according to court records.
