On October 30th at 1917 hours, a female inmate, Leana Conrady, 32 years of age from Reno, NV, who was incarcerated at the Plumas County Correctional Facility was found unresponsive in her cell. Conrady used a bed sheet to hang herself. Correctional Officers immediately removed the sheet and began life saving efforts. Medical personnel arrived at the facility and continued with life-saving efforts. Conrady was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Conrady was arrested in Siskiyou County on a Sierra County arrest warrant. She was later transferred to the Plumas County Correctional Center for temporary incarceration, pending court proceedings in Sierra County.
A joint investigation between the Plumas County Sheriff's Office and the Lassen County District Attorney’s Office was conducted and determined that Conrady took her own life. Foul play is not suspected.
We are saddened by this event and send our deepest condolences to the family. Visit us online at plumascounty.us and follow
