A man who reportedly hanged himself in his cell at the Drew County Detention Center on Wednesday, died Saturday at Jefferson Regional Hospital. Joseph Adcock’s funeral arrangements were incomplete Monday morning.
Wednesday afternoon at 4:20 p.m., Adcock hanged himself with fabric he suspended from a vent in the ceiling of his jail cell, according to Drew County Sheriff Mark Gober.
“A jailer saw him and picked him up and called another jailer for assistance,” Gober said. “They got him down and performed CPR while waiting for the ambulance to arrive.”
