Deputies and medical staff initiated life-saving efforts but were unsuccessful, the sheriff’s office said in a Wednesday news release.

The woman was identified as 29-year-old Abby Angelo. She was booked into the jail on June 19 on failure to appear warrants in Jefferson and Adams counties drug cases, according to Colorado Bureau of Investigation records. She was also wanted for an identity theft case out of Broomfield.
