Man Dies in Taylor County Jail

02 Oct News

An inmate in Taylor County jail has died of an apparent suicide.

The Taylor County sheriff’s department says the 21 year old man was found hanging from a sheet Friday night. He was cut down immediately but was non-responsive, and efforts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful.

The inmate was pronounced dead at Memorial Health Center in Medford a short time later. He had been in the Taylor County Jail for about a week on misdemeanor charges.

An outside Sheriff’s Office from Rusk County is working with the review, but foul play is not suspected.
