LONGVIEW — An autopsy has not revealed the cause of death for a Cowlitz County Jail inmate who died over the weekend.

Coroner Tim Davidson told The Daily News it will be several weeks before the results are back from toxicology tests.

Twenty-nine-year-old Stephanie Jo Deal of Longview had been in jail for a week on a misdemeanor citation Saturday when she went into medical distress. She was taken to St. John Medical Center in Longview where she died.
