Lifesaving efforts by Fillmore County staff, Preston Ambulance, Mayo One staff, and Preston Police were unfortunately unsuccessful. The Fillmore County Sheriff’s Office extends our deepest sympathy to the victim’s family for their loss. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) was requested to conduct the death investigation. During this incident the jail’s general population and the public was not at risk.
