SARASOTA COUNTY — Detectives with the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office were investigating a possible suicide by an inmate at the county jail Wednesday.
“Deputies were alerted around 3 p.m. Wednesday to a possible suicide attempt within the facility,” the SCSO stated in a brief press release. “Inmates, deputies and medical staff responded and rendered life-saving efforts but were unsuccessful.

The Sheriff’s office did not release the identity of the detainee or any other details of the situation, as next of kin had not been notified.
