An inmate has died of an apparent suicide at the Jeffco jail.
The 24-year-old man was found hanging in his cell Thursday night by a sheriff's deputy during a walk-through check of the inmate's cell.
The Sheriff's Office said the deputy tried to revive the inmate by administering CPR. He was pronounced dead in the cell a short time later.
While the Sheriff's Office said all signs pointed to a suicide, an investigation is currently under way to determine the cause of the man's death.
