Jail inmate commits suicide (02/05/2014)
According to a report from the Buffalo County Sheriff’s Office, on February 3, at approximately 2:47 p.m., jail staff were doing a routine check of inmates in the facility when staff found a 21-year-old male unresponsive in his cell from an apparent suicide attempt. Staff members immediately provided first aid until EMS arrived on the scene. The male was transported to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Wabasha, Minn., by ambulance. At approximately 3:40 p.m. the hospital advised that the male had died.

Family members of the victim have been notified. As is normal in such cases, Buffalo County Sheriff’s Office has requested an outside law enforcement agency conduct an independent audit of the procedures done at the jail. An autopsy is being done by the Olmsted County Medical Examiner at this time and results are pending. The incident is currently being reviewed by the sheriff’s office.
