  A Garfield County Jail inmate was discovered in her cell Tuesday after an apparent suicide. Garfield County Sherrif’s office says the woman, Laura Ebbs, used parts of her clothing to hang herself. Deputies on the scene attempted to revive Ebbs using CPR and an AED. She was then transported to Valley View Hospital where she received additional care. On Friday her life support was suspended and she passed away.

  Laura Ebbs was booked on March 3 of this year for numerous charges including her alleged involvement in an armed robbery in Glenwood Springs. The incident resulted in her co-defendant Eric Reynolds being shot and killed by Law Enforcement. Laura Ebbs was 47 years old.
