Manhattan Inmate Dies in Suicide Attempt

KSAL StaffJanuary 6, 2016

Authorities say a Manhattan man has died after a jailhouse suicide attempt.

The Manhattan Mercury reports that the man died Monday morning after he was removed from life support. Geary County Sheriff Tony Wolf said in a news release that the man had attempted suicide in his cell Dec. 31 at the county’s detention center.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation and Geary County Sheriff’s Office are conducting a joint investigation.

The man was initially taken to Geary County Community Hospital and later transported to the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City.

Wolf says the man was in jail for failing to appear on a warrant, not for “anything hard core.” He says there was no indication that the man was a danger to himself.
