Zaun, 22, is currently in the Burleigh County Detention Center and is waiting to be transported back to the Dakota Women's Correctional Rehab Center, Colby Braun, the operation administrator for the DWCRC, said.

"We don't really know anything," Braun said of a motive.

Zaun was jailed on June 12, 2007, at the Dakota Women's Correction Rehab Center for possession of methamphetamines, possession of drug paraphernalia, ingesting a controlled substance and criminal trespass.

Braun said Zaun was described as a model prisoner with no prior record of misconduct.

Due to the minimum security nature of her incarceration, Zaun was not under constant surveillance while working.
