Jackson County inmate dies of apparent suicide

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – An inmate at the Jackson County Detention Center has died following an apparent suicide.

Shortly after 7:30 p.m. on Monday, the inmate was found unresponsive in the dormitory area. On-duty nursing staff immediately responded and emergency personnel were called. The inmate was transported to the hospital where he died.

“It pains me to know that this happened to an inmate inside our facility,” said Joe Piccinini, director of the Jackson County Department of Corrections. “We take this incident and every other incident inside our facility seriously, as the safety and security of staff and inmates is a top priority for myself and detention center staff.”

No other details will be released at this time. The Jackson County Sheriff’s Department is conducting an investigation.

Serious question, I hope someone might know. It seems like there a quite a few deaths at the Jackson County jail. But I can also imagine that being locked up can cause a few suicides. Is the rate or mortality at Jackson County higher than other jails? Or is it just reported more regularly because of the other issues at the jail and the size of the county? i.e. Boone County might have 3 deaths a year and that is in line with Jackson County. or Clay County might have 20 a year and that is more than Jackson but we just don't hear. Anyone can feel free to answer.

How can you "Die of apparent Suicide"?

Is that the same as saying the "Cause of Death" was "Killing Himself"?

Sorry, when I woke up this morning I found out I could only speak English.

Aren't they supposed to be watching the inmates so this kind of thing doesn't happen?

Seems as if the JCDC is trending in the right direction (not).
Only way to fix it is to get rid of EVERYONE and tell the Sheriff to run it with deputies, like Clay and Platte Counties, etc.
