BRAINERD, Minn. -- Authorities say an inmate at the Crow Wing County Jail apparently committed suicide.
Jail staffers found 42-year-old Kyle Jason Peterson of New Prague unresponsive early Monday.
Peterson had been jailed since Oct. 6 for violating probation on a 2005 conviction for third-degree criminal sexual conduct. He was due to attend a probation violation hearing on Wednesday.
The cause of his death is pending an autopsy. The sheriff's office says the death remains under investigation.
