An inmate found dead in the Adams County jail hanged himself, according to the County Attorney.
County Attorney Donna Fegler Daiss investigated the death of inmate Matthew Arterbrun in her role as county coroner. Arterbrun was found dead in his fail cell this past weekend. He was 39.
Arterburn was being held at the jail in Hastings, awaiting transfer to state prison.
Adams County Sheriff Gregg Magee says the county had been waiting on paperwork to make the transfer. Arterburn had been convicted on child pornography charges.
