January 22, Santa Rosa, CA
A Windsor woman who was arrested Thursday afternoon for violating her probation for DUI apparently hanged herself hours later in her cell at the Sonoma County jail, the sheriff's office said Friday.
Teresa Ellen Hagan, 49, was pronounced dead at the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Santa Rosa at 7:24 p.m. She was found hanging in her cell around 7 p.m., Lt. Chris Spallino said.
Hagan hanged herself on a sweatshirt she wrapped around a pipe in her cell, Spallino said. She was intoxicated when she was booked around 1:30 p.m. for violating her DUI probation and was placed in a sobering cell, Spallino said.
Rest In Peace Teresa Hagan.
