The release says officers, jail medical staff, and EMS performed lifesaving measures, but Hoop was pronounced dead at 8:56 a.m.

The Clermont County Coroner says it will be weeks until a cause of death is known because she has to wait for toxicology results and review medical records.

Hoop was booked into the jail on Feb. 12 on a bench warrant on an indictment for drug possession, according to jail records.
