Detectives arrived at the scene as EMS personnel were transporting the inmate, a 47-year-old Hispanic male to the hospital. Detectives believe the inmate hung himself using a portion of a bed sheet.
A guard discovered the man while conducting rounds and called for assistance. CPR was initiated until emergency response personnel arrived and transported the inmate by ambulance to Conroe Regional Medical Center. The inmate remains in critical condition.
The identity of the inmate is being withheld until family can be notified. The investigation is ongoing by the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office major crimes unit.
