S. Dakota Detox Center Death Ruled Suicide

December 12, 2012, 3:09 PM

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The Minnehaha County Sheriff's Office says the death of a woman who was a patient at the county's detoxification center has been ruled a suicide.

The 48-year-old woman was found unresponsive at the detox center last month shortly after being admitted. The woman's name has not been released.

The Sheriff's Office says in a news release that a toxic level of rubbing alcohol was found in the woman's blood and the manner of death was ruled a suicide.

As standard procedure, the case will be forwarded to the Minnehaha County State's Attorney's Office for review.

The incident came weeks after the facility was temporary closed to new patients because of a state investigation into safety issues.
