Late last week, an inmate at Larimer County Jail was found unresponsive by jail deputies. 

During a routine inmate status check Jan. 25 at approximately 1:48 p.m., a Larimer County Jail deputy found an “unresponsive male” in a cell with a mattress cover around his neck, according to a press release from Larimer County Sheriff’s Office. 


According to the report, deputies and jail medical staff immediately began lifesaving efforts. Later, the inmate was transported to a local hospital to receive additional medical treatment. 

During this incident, no other inmates were in the same cell or involved. The 8th Judicial District Critical Incident Response Team was activated to oversee this investigation, and Fort Collins Police Services is the lead investigating agency. 

At this time no further information is available.
