A Wake County Sheriff's Office spokesman said Friday that officials are awaiting autopsy results to explain the death Tuesday of a 44-year-old woman who had been arrested last week on a charge of manufacturing methamphetamine at a house south of Raleigh.
Cecelia Lynn Sypka “experienced medical problems” Tuesday evening, and a Wake County EMS ambulance took her to WakeMed Raleigh hospital, Capt. James Stevens said. She died there, he said.
Sypka was being held in lieu of $300,000 bail in the Wake County Detention Center at 3301 Hammond Road.
“Results of an autopsy are pending, and the investigation is ongoing,” Stevens said in a statement.
Never miss a local story.
Sypka had not had any confrontation with jailers before the problems developed, Stevens said, but the sheriff’s office declined to disclose other specifics during the investigation.
Narcotics investigators arrested Sypka, Christopher Lee Sandy and Robbie Winnen Dyson II on the night of April 24 at the house they lived in at 906 Sunny Lane, a Raleigh address in the county.
