Woman who died in jail’s medical unit identified
The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office is investigating Kronberger’s cause and manner of death. The sheriff’s office also is conducting a death investigation and a medical “morbidity review.”
Inmate death investigations often take months. At least nine inmates have died at the county jail since 2010.
Kronberger had been in the jail from Jan. 3 until Jan. 6 following a domestic-violence incident. She was released Jan. 6 and booked again early Jan. 7 for violating an order related to the same case, according to public records. She also was being held for investigation of obstructing officers and resisting arrest. She had previous arrests for drugs, and reportedly used heroin.
She was found unresponsive about 1 a.m. Monday in the medical unit, according to the sheriff’s office.
