Ohio Jail Officials Say Inmate Found Hanged In Cell
Authorities say a man in custody on an alleged parole violation apparently hanged himself in his cell at the western Ohio jail.
Clark County Sheriff Gene Kelly says Springfield police brought 52-year-old David Brent Newland, of St. Paris, to the jail shortly after 8:30 p.m. Friday.
The sheriff said in a release that deputies assigned to the jail found Newland hanging in his cell when they did a check of inmates about 3:30 Saturday morning. Authorities say the deputies began life saving measures, but Newland was declared dead when paramedics arrived a few minutes later.
The sheriff says jail officials appeared to have strictly followed established procedures. But Kelly says the death remains under investigation by his office and the Clark County coroner’s office.
