- Taylor County calls in outside help to look into the hanging death of an inmate.
The Talor County sheriff's department says 21 year old Jesse Holz of Edgerton was found hanging from a sheet at 6:45 Friday night.
He was cut down immediately but was non-responsive.
Efforts were made to save Holz, but he was pronounced dead at Memorial Health Center in Medford 45 minutes later.
He had been in the Taylor county jail for about a week on misdemeanor charges.
Foul play is not suspected, but the Rusk County Sheriff's office has been asked to work with the Taylor County Medical Examiner's office in reviewing the death.
Taylor County says three other suicide attempts at the jail this year were prevented.
