Attempted Murder Suspect Commits Suicide in Jail

Shortly after 10:00AM on the morning of May 25, 2014, a thirty-five year old male inmate died from taking his own life while housed at the Sacramento County Main Jail.   

The man had been in custody at our Main Jail facility since June 9, 2013, for multiple felony charges including attempted murder, child abuse and assault with a deadly weapon.  

This death does not appear suspicious.  As standard procedure, the Sheriff’s Department will conduct a thorough inmate-death investigation in accordance with the department procedures and state laws.  The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office will forward its findings as prescribed by law.  The Coroner’s Office will release the name of the inmate after they notify next of kin.
