Sprelgl, a grand jury ruled. Spreigl's death was a result of suicide by hanging, the grand jury said. State law requires that a grand jury investigation be conducted any time a person dies while in police custody. The purpose is to determine whether law enforcement officers caused or in any way contributed to the death. Sprelgl, who had been in jail awaiting trial on robbery charges, was found hanging in his cell by a deputy who was conducting an early-morning check. The grand jury was selected Tuesday and heard testimony on the case until Thursday afternoon. The 16-raember jury issued its findings Friday to Madison County District Court Judge Richard Garden. , : Although state law provides that grand jury proceedings may be kept confidential, Garden decided to authorize release of the jury's findings. The grand jury ruled that jail policies and procedures did not contribute to Spreigl's death. In its findings, it commended the on-duty jail personnel for their response to the incident . During its visit to the jail area of the Madison County Courthouse, the jury did report on some areas of concern, including locking mechanisms that were not working correctly and inmate medications that were stored in an unsecured area of the jail The jury also said the setup and design of the jail presents potential problems when jail staff members are confronted with a crisis. The jury made a number of recommendations, including these: Mandatory yearly review of jail policy and procedures by all jail personnel to ensure consistency in all aspects of job performance - The medical log for' Jan inmates should include additional information, such as the amount of each medication TO SERVICE Outstanding Memorial Counselor Pat Stephenson Working as a Qualified Professional Counselor, Pat is recognized for her outstanding accomplishments and dedication in helping families make important decisions.
