She was found around 11:50 p.m. during an observation check.

Deputies immediately began CPR until medics arrived from the Springfield Fire Division. She was later pronounced dead.

The body was transported to the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office for examination to determine the cause of death.

Investigators believe 32-year-old Kristy Marie Parker may have overdosed on a drug.

Parker was in the jail on a felony charge of drug possession and two counts of misdemeanor drug instruments.

This case is still under investigation. Clark County detectives have submitted evidence to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
