BREAKING NEWS: Madison County Sheriff Jerry Combs dead of heart attack

RICHMOND — County Coroner Jimmy Cornelison told various media outlets Monday night that the Madison County sheriff, 61-year-old Jerry Combs, had died of a heart attack.

Combs was found Monday evening in the garden at his home.

Cornelison said Combs was pronounced dead a short time later at Saint Joseph Berea hospital.

Combs was elected to his first term as sheriff in 2010, defeating incumbent sheriff Nelson O’Donnell.

Prior to that, he served with the Berea Police Department for 31 years, first as a patrolman and then working his way up through the ranks to become assistant chief.

He held that rank when he retired from the BPD in 2006.
