Warrick County Inmate Death
A Warrick County, IN inmate died last week after what has been ruled as a suicide by strangulation.
Warrick County Jail Officials found the body of James Pyott, 37-year-old resident of Evansville, IN, unconscious in his cell last Sunday night. They called in an EMS team who tried to revive Pyott, but he was pronounced dead shortly after their arrival.
The Indiana State Police are conducting an investigation into the death, but they do not believe foul play was a factor. The autopsy on Monday revealed the death of the Indiana inmate was caused by strangulation.
While the cause of this man’s suicide is still unknown, we can only speculate at the reasons he may have been prompted to commit such an act.
Often, prison inmates suffer at the hands of abusers (whether they are other inmates or prison guards), they are often neglected, refused appropriate medical treatment (for both physical and mental health) and there are a large number of prison deaths each year that happen as a result of this type of maltreatment.
