Grand jury finds no crime involved in death of jail inmate

OSHKOSH, NE (Associated Press) – A grand jury has determined that no crime was committed by anyone in the death of a jail inmate in western Nebraska.

The jury met to investigate the September death of 37-year-old Candy Flood of Sidney at the Garden County Jail in Oshkosh. Flood was being housed there for Cheyenne County after being arrested on suspicion of disturbing the peace.

The jurors heard testimony from nine witnesses and reviewed over 100 exhibits during their session last month regarding Flood’s death. State law requires a grand jury investigation when someone dies in custody or being arrested.
