Cindy Schulz-Juedes, 68, was found unresponsive in her cell July 19, according to the Wisconsin Department of Corrections. The Fond du Lac Police Department and Fire and Rescue responded to the prison, but efforts to revive her were unsuccessful. She had been sentenced to life in prison for the 2006 death of her husband in Marathon County.
Fond du Lac Police Chief Aaron Goldstein told a USA TODAY-Wisconsin reporter last week that his department was in “the infancy stages of a homicide investigation” regarding her death.
Support Our Cause
People in our communities without direct experience with incarceration are often ill-informed of the negative, and catastrophic, effects on earnings and employment, physical and mental health, housing and education, and family well-being created and perpetuated by the carceral system. Through our advocacy work in local and state government, EXPO creates space, opportunity, and support for system-impacted individuals to raise their voices about the systemic and institutional harm of the incarceration. In the words of one of our organizers, EXPO’s work “shines a light of awareness and truth where others refuse to acknowledge.”
