CODY, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming authorities are investigating the death of a 45-year-old inmate at the Park County Sheriff's Office Detention Center.
The Park County Sheriff's Office says Robert Henry Jackson, of Cody, was found about 10:15 a.m. Sunday in the shower area by other inmates. He was unresponsive.
