A LaRue County Detention Center inmate died of an apparent heart attack Jan. 28 at the jail.
Valerie Lynn Jones, 53, formerly of Eubank, complained of illness early Thursday, according to Chief Deputy Travis Strader. After she collapsed, deputies performed rescue breathing until paramedics arrived. Strader said Jones "still had a heartbeat" before being transported to Hardin Memorial Hospital, but was declared dead at the hospital.
Jones, one of 15 female inmates at the jail, was serving a five-year sentence.
