CERRO GORDO, Iowa (AP) - Authorities have identified a man found unresponsive inside a county jail cell in northern Iowa.

The Iowa Department of Public Safety says 28-year-old Dacota Alan Witham, of Mason City, was found unresponsive Tuesday morning in his cell at the Cerro Gordo County Jail. He was taken to a nearby hospital and pronounced dead.

Witham was the only person in the cell at the time.

An autopsy was performed Wednesday, but a cause of death has not been determined. There was no sign of trauma and additional laboratory tests will be needed.
