An autopsy was performed this morning (February 29) on the 47 year-old woman who died Wednesday (February 27) while in police custody.

She was taken into custody at 10:53 the previous evening upon her release from the Hilo Medical Center. She was arrested for two outstanding warrants issued for revocation of her probation. The decedent was unable to post $100,000 bail and was placed into a single occupancy cell. Her death has been classified as an unattended death.
