57-year-old Arthur Halks, a male inmate at the Missoula County Detention Facility, died over the weekend.


On 07/03/16, at approximately 12:15 pm, detention officers were serving lunch when they found Mr. Halks unresponsive in his bunk and began performing CPR.


Medical staff within the detention facility also assisted in life-saving efforts.


EMS arrived and transported Mr. Halks to St. Patrick hospital where he was pronounced dead.
