Michigan Sheriff’s Association to Assign Investigators to Saginaw County Jail Death
May 11, 2023 4:00AM EDT
An out-of-county agency is investigating the death of a woman at the Saginaw County Jail.
Sheriff William Federspiel requested the investigation by the Michigan Sheriff’s Association into the death of 61-year-old Patricia Baggett, found hanging in the common area of the jail. The association will assign a mission team which comprises two investigators from sheriff’s departments at least two counties away, in order to ensure an objective and unbiased investigation.
Baggett was arrested May 1 for drunk driving and resisting, assaulting or obstructing police. She was discovered deceased last Friday. Autopsy results are pending.
