A woman incarcerated in the Weld County Jail died early Sunday morning.

The woman, who has not been publicly identified, died at 12:05 a.m. after Weld County Sheriff’s deputies found her “in medical distress,” around 11:30 p.m., according to a statement from Greeley police spokesman Kent Keller, who released the information on behalf of the 19th Judicial Critical Incident Response Team, which is investigating the death.

Deputies and on-site medical staff “immediately began life-saving efforts,” Keller said in the release, but could not keep the woman alive.

Keller said Sunday he could not offer any additional details on the death and said the investigation into what happened is ongoing. He declined to say what sort of medical distress the woman was in, how deputies discovered her or exactly what steps were taken to treat her.

He did not know the woman’s age. She will be publicly identified after her family is notified.
