CRANDON, WI (WSAU) - Officials looking into the Sunday death of a Forest County jail inmate. 

The Sheriff's office says a 17-year-old female inmate hung herself inside the jail early on Sunday the 23rd. She was transported to Saint Mary's Hospital but pronounced dead. She had been in jail awaiting court dates in a Forest County case.

The woman's name has not been released. The case is still under investigation along with help from the Oneida County sheriff's department. Investigators haven’t released any possible reasons why the inmate would kill herself, or how she was able to hang herself with limited materials in a supervised cell.
