Edgar Co., IL. (ECWd) –

A woman’s death in her cell at Edgar County’s jail is under investigation, but authorities are stating at the moment that there is no foul play suspected…leaving only a couple of other possible causes.

Michelle L. Tosser Hamilton, 46, of Paris, was arrested Wednesday morning (August 26) on a charge of Possession of a Controlled Substance. She was jailed that day, and seemed to be doing just fine at that time.

Then very early the next morning – and this according to a press release from the Edgar County Coroner’s office – at 4:41 a.m Aug. 27, jail staff found Hamilton unresponsive in her holding cell.
