OSHKOSH, Neb. (AP) — A grand jury has determined that no crime was committed by anyone in the death of a jail inmate in western Nebraska.
The jury met to investigate the Sept. 18 death of 37-year-old Candy Flood, of Sidney, at the Garden County Jail in Oshkosh. Flood was being housed there for Cheyenne County after being arrested on suspicion of disturbing the peace.
The jurors heard testimony from nine witnesses and reviewed 122 exhibits during their Jan. 30 session regarding Flood’s death. State law requires a grand jury investigation when someone dies in custody or being arrested.
The jury report says Flood’s death was caused by heart attack and high blood pressure.
