Mississippi investigators are looking into how an inmate at the Jackson County jail was found hanging from a window bar in his cell Saturday morning.

Cherie Ward, with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, said in a press release the inmate had a blanket around his neck when he was discovered just before midnight at the Adult Detention Center.

“The inmate was taken to Singing River Hospital where he remains in critical condition this morning,” said Ward in a press release issued yesterday.

The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation will lead the investigation into the incident.
