KENOSHA, Wisc. — A 25-year-old inmate of the Kenosha County Jail was pronounced dead at Froedtert South in Kenosha after he was found unresponsive in his jail cell earlier in the night.

The sheriff's office said in an update on Tuesday that the inmate who died was Reighnn T. Post-McNab of Kenosha. He had been in custody at the jail since June 22, 2021. State court records show he was being held for felony driving or operating a vehicle without consent and possession of burglarious tools, and misdemeanor criminal damage to property, among other charges.

At about 1:04 a.m., a correctional officer found the inmate after conducting cell checks. CPR was initiated and the inmate had to be transported from the Pre-Trial facility to the hospital after remaining unresponsive.

It appears as though the inmate died due to medical causes, according to a press release from the Kenosha Sheriff’s Department.

The inmate was from Kenosha and the name is being withheld at this time.

The death does not appear to be suspicious and did not involve any use of force by the correctional staff.

Investigators from the Racine County Sheriff’s Department responded to the Pre-Trial Facility to conduct the investigation based on an agreement between our two departments. The Racine County Sheriff’s Department will be the lead agency in the investigation
