A man being held on a misdemeanor traffic warrant was found dead in the Jefferson County Jail on June 12 about three hours after his arrest.
A deputy discovered the 47-year-old man hanging in a holding cell, according to a statement released June 12 by the sheriff's office. Deputies immediately began performing CPR and called for additional medical assistance. The man was taken to St. Anthony Central Hospital, and he was pronounced dead at 7:22 a.m.
The Jefferson County coroner's office was withholding the man's name until his family could be notified.
