The Crow Wing County Sheriff's Office reports that Kobe Marcell, 18, was pronounced dead after being taken to North Memorial Medical Center on Saturday.

He had been found unresponsive in his cell at the county jail around 10:53 p.m., with deputies and jail staff providing medical assistance until he was taken to the hospital

Marcell was being held in the jail on a probation violation warrant, having earlier been arrested in Wadena County.

His death is now being investigated, with authorities awaiting the autopsy report from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office.

Marcell's obituary states he was born in Perham, Minnesota and attended high school in New York Mills. He died on Sunday, surrounded by his family.

Kobe vastly loved, kind hearted and gentle soul was a son, brother, grandson, uncle. He had more talent in his little finger than most do in their whole body," it says.

"He loved drawing, hunting, fishing and animals. Naturally gifted at any sport he tried or project he put his mind too. This exceptionally good-looking young man will leave a void in the hearts of everyone he knew, bigger that he will ever know!"
