Jailed Inmate Hangs Himself
HOUSTON (AP) — Officials say an inmate has died at the Houston City Jail after he apparently hanged himself using his clothes.
Houston police on Friday said 38-year-old Hung Do died of an apparent suicide.
Do's body was discovered Thursday afternoon in the cell he shared with other inmates. Officials say Do hours earlier was arrested on a charge of possession of a controlled substance.
Police spokesman Kese (KEES) Smith has said the inmate asked to make a phone call and became agitated when the person he was trying to reach did not answer. Do was later found unresponsive, in his cell, by other prisoners.
CPR efforts failed.
