Another death in a Milwaukee County jail facility


A 52-year-old inmate died Sunday inside the Milwaukee County House of Corrections in Franklin. The Medical Examiner hasn’t released a cause of death.

The inmate was identified as Larance C. McMorris, of Milwaukee. Milwaukee Journal Sentinel¬†reports that “McMorris was a registered sex offender and under a court-imposed domestic abuse order prohibiting contact with an unnamed victim through July 17, 2025, according to online state court records.”

McMorris’ death comes after other deaths in Milwaukee County jails, and Milwaukee County Sheriff not doing anything about it.

Earlier this week, an investigation found that charges should be brought against seven jail officials who denied water to an inmate for seven days, resulting in the man’s death.
