Authorities report nothing suspicious in the manner of death of a Minnesota woman while in the custody of the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Ricky Chastain said the woman was brought in the evening of Oct. 8 and died Tuesday morning. She was identified as Ginger Leeann Reed, 41, of 2735 Marshall St. in Minneapolis, MN.

The Coroner’s Office ordered an autopsy performed Wednesday, and the results are awaiting a toxicology report. Officers attempted CPS when the inmate was found unresponsive and EMS was called.   

The Sheriff’s Office, which manages the Johnson Detention Center where the victim died, brought Reed to the jail on a breach of peace charge, a report said. The State Law Enforcement Division is conducting an investigation, a report said.
