NEWS RELEASE

RE: Bonneville County Jail Medical Emergency

Just after 2am this morning Bonneville County Sheriff’s Deputies discovered a male inmate, 39 year old Jarred Scott Wallander, unresponsive in his cell. Deputies immediately began CPR and lifesaving measures until Idaho Falls Ambulance Personnel arrived. Continued efforts to revive Mr. Wallander were unsuccessful and he was declared deceased at the scene.

Bonneville County Sheriff Sam Hulse requested assistance from the Tri-County Sheriff’s Association, a standard practice when there is a death or serious incident inside the jail facility. Deputies from Bannock and Jefferson County Sheriff’s Offices responded and will be conducting the investigation. The Bonneville County Coroner’s Office was also notified and responded to the scene.

The investigation is ongoing and no further information is available at this time.
