BANGOR, Maine (AP) — A Maine sheriff’s office says a woman was found unconscious in her jail cell and then died.
The Bangor Daily News reports that correctional officers were unsuccessful in their efforts to resuscitate 37-year-old Jennifer Dyer on Sunday.
Chief Deputy William Birch says officers found Dyer unresponsive around 4:46 p.m. Sunday.
Birch says Dyer’s death is under investigation and has not been deemed suspicious.
Dyer was brought to the jail mid-day Saturday on two outstanding warrants. Such warrants involve fines and operating a vehicle with a suspended license.
