The family of a mentally ill man who died in the San Luis Obispo County Jail earlier this year will hold a press conference Thursday morning. 

Andrew Holland, who suffered from schizophrenia, was restrained in a chair for 46 hours and died of a blood clot in his lung shortly after being released from the chair. 

The Sheriff’s Office has said it does not have proper facilities to hold people suffering from mental health issues. 

Holland’s family is expected to announce new details about their legal case against the County of San Luis Obispo, as well as discuss "disturbing new information" about what happened to their son. 

KSBY will stream the press conference live on our website starting at 10 a.m. Thursday. 

Tune into KSBY News Thursday evening for a full report on the latest developments.
