County jail inmate death prompts probe – Radio Iowa

The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation is investigating a death at the Cerro Gordo County Jail.

The Iowa Department of Public Safety says correctional officers at the jail at about 8:45 Wednesday morning observed an inmate in a solitary cell having a medical issue.

Correctional officers entered the cell and began life-saving measures. Those efforts continued until Mason City Fire Department paramedics arrived to transport the inmate to the hospital, where he later died.
