(COLUMBUS) - An Elizabethtown woman died in the Bartholomew County Jail Saturday night and Indiana State Police are investigating.

42-year-old Angela L. Blair was serving a sentence for a probation violation on drug related charges. Jail staff responded to a report that she needed medical attention at about 10:30 p.m. that night.

As the jail staff spoke to her she collapsed and became unresponsive.

Paramedics from Columbus Regional Hospital could not revive her and she was pronounced dead by the Bartholomew County Coroner's office, says Sgt. Stephen Wheeles, spokesman for the state police.

Wheeles says an autopsy was performed Sunday at the hospital and results are pending.
