Jailer Gregory succumbed to injuries sustained several days earlier when he was attacked by two inmates who were attempting to escape from the county jail. The inmates struck Jailer Gregory over the head with a bottle, causing a severe injury. As they forced him into their cell they slammed the cell door onto his hand, causing further injury to the hand.

A skin infection set in as the result of the wounds he received and he died several days later.
