CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Texas Rangers are investigating an in-custody death at the Nueces County McKinzie Annex jail over the weekend.
Sheriff J.C. Hooper says a correctional officer found the 29-year-old inmate unresponsive in his cell at around 6:20 p.m. Saturday.
He was transported to Spohn Shoreline Hospital and was declared dead shortly afterwards from what officials believe to be self-strangulation.
The inmate had been booked in the jail two days earlier on multiple charges.
Detectives are also investigating the incident.
