Grand County inmate dies

A male inmate from the Grand County Jail who was found unconscious last Wednesday after an apparent suicide attempt has since died.

Monday afternoon Grand County officials confirmed the man’s passing. Grand County Coroner Brenda Bock was preparing for autopsy procedures on the man’s body Monday and was not able to release additional details until after the autopsy was performed. The name of the male subject, 50, has not been released at this time. Information taken from the Grand County Dispatch call log indicates the male subject attempted suicide by hanging.

Last Wednesday, July 6, the Grand County Sheriff’s Office (GCSO) issued a press release stating a GCSO deputy discovered an unconscious inmate inside the Grand County Jail at approximately 10:20 a.m. that morning. After discovering the man’s body officials from the GCSO attempted CPR and called for Grand County EMS. The man was taken to St. Anthony Hospital in Lakewood on a Flight For Life Helicopter shortly afterwards.
