Polk County Jail inmate dies in apparent suicide

3-2-2012 Florida:

An inmate facing child sex abuse charges was found hanging by a sheet in his cell this morning, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Office.

Wilfredo Morales-Torres, 40, had been held in the South County Jail in Frostproof since his extradition in December from Michigan, the agency reported.

He was assigned to a cell by himself and left a suicide note stating he was depressed and wanted to go to sleep. It could not be learned today if Morales-Torres was on suicide watch or how often corrections officers checked his cell.

Morales-Torres had been charged with kidnapping, attempted lewd molestation and false imprisonment of a 14-year-old girl. He also was charged with stealing a car and jewelry and dealing in stolen property. His death remains under investigation. ..Source.. by Henry Pierson Curtis, Orlando Sentinel
