A 52-year-old man who died in the Bucks County Correctional Facility in January suffered from opiate withdrawal, according to a report.
Frederick Adami, 52, who previously lived in Northampton and Yardley, died due to complications from opiate withdrawal inside the Doylestown Township facility operated by the county. The man also had an enlarged heart, according to the Bucks County Courier Times.
Adami was discovered deceased in the correctional facility on Sunday, January 28 in the morning. He was locked up the day before after Bensalem police found he had an open warrant and suspected drugs with him, according to authorities.
According to county court records, Adami had previous run-ins with police and pleaded guilty and was sentenced to probation for a 2015 bad checks case out of Yardley.
Adami, a father and grandfather, was listed in his obituary as being a Philadelphia sports fan and as someone who enjoyed fishing and music.
“Fred will be remembered as a man of faith and his strong love of the Lord,” his obituary said.
