NEWS lettering

An inmate being held at the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office Detention Facility was found hanging from a noose in his cell just before 10 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 18, 2018. The noose appeared to have been fashioned from a bedsheet.

Deputies immediately removed the sheet and began lifesaving efforts, which were continued by nursing staff and South Metro Fire Rescue. Despite the efforts, the inmate could not be resuscitated and he was pronounced deceased at the scene.

At the time of his death, the inmate was in his cell by himself and his death does not appear to be suspicious. The on-going investigation into the death is being conducted by the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office and the Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office.
