JACKSON HOLE, WYO – County authorities have confirmed the death of an inmate in the Teton County Detention Center on Thursday, July 16. Kenneth Scott Millward, 47, was found dead in his cell early in the morning on Thursday. Detention officers originally thought the man to be asleep but called Jackson Hole Fire/EMS when Millward appeared unresponsive.

The Teton County Sheriff’s Office requested the Jackson Police Department respond to the jail to conduct an internal investigation into the cause of death. No foul play is suspected at this time. The family of the deceased has been notified.

County coroner Dr. Brent Blue said Millward likely died from advanced arteriosclerotic coronary vascular disease. Results from further testing, including microscopic and toxicology reports will be available in about two weeks.

Millward was being held on charges if suspected DUI.
