UPDATE: Teenager Commits Suicide in Forest County Jail Submitted: 12/31/2012
Crandon - We now know the name of a girl who killed herself in the Forest County Jail.

Cody Lynne Wolfe was 17 years old when she hanged herself on December 23rd.

Wolfe was in jail because she had been charged with stealing a car, obstructing an officer, and disorderly conduct.

She didn't appear for her hearing on December 5, so Vilas County deputies arrested her December 13. Wolfe was charged as an adult and housed with adults because she was 17 years old.

That's legal in Wisconsin.

The Oneida County Sherriff's Office is helping Forest County with the investigation.
