A 43-year-old white male was transported from the Escambia County Main jail at approximately 6:15 a.m. on Wednesday, January 21. The inmate was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased just before 7 a.m.
Further details will become available pending completion of an Escambia County Sherriff’s Office investigation.
For more information, please contact the Escambia County Office of Public Information and Communications at (850) 595-3476.
On Nov. 1, 2014, another suicide happened in the jail. It’s my understanding the Medical Examiner has yet to release her report on the incident.
