Woman found dead in jail ID’d, from M’ville

MARYSVILLE – A woman who was found dead Dec. 9 in her cell at the Marysville Municipal Jail has been identified as Jennifer R. Wheelock, 47, of Marysville.

The cause and manner of her death are pending further investigation by Marysville police, the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s office states in a news release.

Custody officers in the Public Safety Building found the woman unresponsive in her cell at 4:35 p.m. and began CPR.

Man injured in assault

ARLINGTON – A man suffered serious head injuries in an assault this weekend in Arlington.

Police were called at about 8:30 a.m. Saturday and responded to a reported stabbing in the 17000 block of 91st Street NE. However, first responders found no signs of a knife attack.

The victim, 58, was transported to an Everett hospital, but when signs showed the head trauma was worse than suspected, he was transferred to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, Arlington spokeswoman Kristin Banfield said.

Police dogs searched the neighborhood, but were unable to locate the attacker. An investigation is ongoing, and detectives have been able to talk to the victim a couple of times to help piece together what happened.
