FOND DU LAC – EXPO (EX-incarcerated People Organizing) of Wisconsin and FREE will hold a candlelight vigil and balloon release from 7 to 8 p.m. July 26 after the death of an inmate at Taycheedah Correctional Institution July 19.

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.
