An inmate at the Henry County jail died Saturday from an apparent suicide, Sheriff Reginald Scandrett said.
Jail staff found Joshua Zeh, 32, of Stockbridge, unresponsive with a sheet around his neck and tied to his bed during a cell check, the sheriff’s office said. Zeh received emergency medical treatment but died from his injuries.
Zeh had been in custody since June 9 on a probation violation and contempt of court charges, the sheriff’s office said. He was previously charged with cruelty to children, family violence and obstruction.
The death remains under investigation.
