The death of an inmate in the Allen County jail Tuesday is under investigation. The Lima News reports Jordan Owsley was found hanging in his cell just after 2 p.m. Allen County Sheriff Sam Crish tells the newspaper deputies attempted CPR but they were unable to revive the man.
Owsley was being kept in a single cell because he had a broken arm when he was booked into the jail Saturday. Crish said inmates with injuries are kept away from the general population.
Owsley was set to serve a 30-day sentence for failing to appear in court and for failing to pay child support.
The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation has been called in to look into the matter.
