More information was released on Tuesday regarding the death of an inmate at the Door County Jail last week.


On February 10th, Sheriff’s deputies at the jail discovered 54-year-old, Michael Savage of Sturgeon Bay unresponsive, after 11 p.m. and immediately began life-saving procedures when they found that he had no pulse and was not breathing.


Personnel from Door County Emergency Services, Sturgeon Bay Fire Department, Sturgeon Bay Police Department and the Patrol Division of the Door County Sheriff’s Department were also called to the cell to help out, but they could not revive the man. The Dane County Medical Examiner has completed the autopsy, but the results of that and the toxicology reports have not been released.
