44-year-old used bed sheets to commit suicide

A 44-year-old inmate at the John Latorraca Correctional Center committed suicide Sunday, hanging himself with bed sheets, according to the Merced County Sheriff's Department.

Correctional officers found William Wolf dead in his cell around 2 p.m. Sunday, according to Deputy Tom MacKenzie, sheriff's spokesman. Wolf had tied the bed sheets to the top rail of a bed bunk, MacKenzie said.

He was awaiting trial at the jail after being arrested by Merced police on Aug. 5 on suspicion of parole violation and a warrant related to allegations of child molestation.

MacKenzie said Wolf gave no indication that he was going to commit suicide.
