A female inmate who had been in custody at the Warren County Jail earlier this week died Thursday at a medical facility, said Maj. Brett Richardson, the jail administrator. Death in Butler County Jail ruled suicide

Richardson said the inmate became ill Tuesday and was transported for medical care. She was released from jail custody on Wednesday, he said.

Richardson would not disclose information about the inmate, including her name, age or nature of illness, but said the woman’s death is suspected to be from natural causes.

The Warren County Sheriff’s office will conduct a death investigation, Richardson said on Friday.
