He was transported to the Waukesha County Jail at around 4:30 pm. He was housed alone in a cell and was found deceased at around 6:00 am on the 17th of January. Life-saving efforts were attempted by corrections staff and paramedics from the Waukesha Fire Department but were unsuccessful. Glenn was pronounced dead at the scene. There were no obvious signs in the cell to suggest the cause of death.
