The Hudson County Prosecutor's Office is investigating the death of a female inmate at the Hudson County Correctional Facility.

According to the prosecutor's office, the lifeless body of a 38-year-old woman was found inside her cell Tuesday morning. Officers and onsite medical personnel tried to help, but she was pronounced deceased at 7:34 a.m., approximately 25 minutes after her body was found, officials said.

No visible signs of trauma were identified, the prosecutor's office said. The cause and manner of the in-custody death are pending.

The woman was a Union County inmate being held at the Hudson County facility.

As of early Wednesday afternoon, the prosecutor's office was not sharing the victim's name.

The models do not take into account the number of casualties that would result from fallout.
