Po­lice have re­leased the iden­tity of the fe­male in­mate found dead in her cell last week at the Charles County De­ten­tion Cen­ter.

Ash­ley Ni­cole Swann, 30, of La Plata ap­peared to be sleep­ing when cor­rec­tional of­fi­cers en­tered the cell and found her, ac­cord­ing to wit­nesses. De­tec­tives are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the in­ci­dent, but re­ported there were no signs of trauma, foul play or sui­cide.

On June 2 around 11:35 p.m., cor­rec­tional of­fi­cers en­tered the woman’s cell that she shared with an­other in­mate to es­cort her to a rou­tine med­i­cal screen­ing and dis­cov­ered her lay­ing face­down on a mat­tress, un­re­spon­sive, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease. Of­fi­cers, med­i­cal staff and EMS im­me­di­ately be­gan CPR and ac­ti­vated an AED in an at­tempt to re­sus­ci­tate her, but she was pro­nounced dead.
