17-Year-Old Jail Inmate Dead

State police are looking into the death of a 17-year-old inmate at the Gogebic County Jail.

The county sheriff’s office says deputies found him unconscious in his cell early yesterday morning during a routing check of the cell block.

They couldn’t revive him, and neither could the EMTs they called in to help.

The teen’s name, his cause of death and the offense for which he was behind bars aren’t being released.
