Death of King County Jail inmate under investigation

A King County Jail inmate died yesterday after being taken to Harborview Medical Center a week ago,  according to a news release from the Department of Adult and Juvenile Detention.

Last Thursday, a corrections officer found the 27-year-old Seattle woman unconscious in her jail cell and called for assistance. Jail staff began CPR before the woman was rushed to Harborview.

The woman had been booked into the jail in downtown Seattle on Sept. 18 for investigation of domestic-violence assault.

The King County Medical Examiner’s Office will determine the cause and manner of the womn’s death. As part of the standard review process for all jail-related deaths, the Department of Adult and Juvenile Detention is working with Public Health – Seattle & King County to conduct an internal investigation.
