Incarcerated man dies at Allegheny County Jail 

by Brittany Hailer

Tim Manino, 60, died in the Allegheny County Jail Thursday, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner.

Jail staff performed CPR for approximately 30 minutes until paramedics arrived and pronounced Manino dead at around 4:30 p.m. Thursday, according to the press release. The county did not indicate where in the jail the Manino was housed. 

The county reported that Manino was arrested on a bench warrant for retail theft on May 22.

On May 23, a drug screening administered showed the presence of opiates. Manino underwent a detox protocol that same day, according to the county. 

Manino died May 25. The county did not provide further details.

Manino is the second man to die following a detox protocol in the jail’s intake this month. On May 8, James Washington, 42, died at UPMC Mercy Hospital after he was released from Allegheny County Jail custody. Washington had also been placed on a detox protocol in intake before he died.

Since April 2020, 19 men have died following their incarceration at the Allegheny County Jail. 

Pennsylvania Rep. Sara Innamorato, winner of the Democratic nomination in the county executive race wrote in a statement to PINJ, “This tragic loss of life is at least the 19th since April 2020 and the second death of someone suffering from addiction while going through intake in the last month — we cannot allow ourselves to normalize this horror. Each and every individual at the ACJ is in the care of the County, and we must do better to immediately and consistently provide comprehensive medical treatment to those in need.”

County Executive Rich Fitzgerald declined to comment.
