18-year-old woman inmate dies in Madison County jail

18-year-old woman inmate dies in Madison County, Indiana, jail

ANDERSON, Ind. (WISH) — An 18-year-old woman inmate died Saturday morning in the Madison County jail, the sheriff’s office says.

Madison County Sheriff John Beeman asked the Indiana State Police to investigate the death, the release says. 

State police on Saturday night identified the woman as Shellby L. Hall. Online court records on Saturday night did not show a criminal case for Hall.

A news release from Lt. Darwin Dwiggins of the Madison County Sheriff’s Department said the woman was found to be unresponsive about 8:30 a.m. Saturday. Jail and medical staff had attempted lifesaving measures.

The state police said in a separate news release, “Toxicology results and an autopsy are pending although no foul play is suspected at this time.”

Neither news release explained why Hall was in jail.
