WASHINGTON, Pa. (AP) - A coroner was investigating after an inmate was found hanged in his cell at a county jail in southwestern Pennsylvania.

Washington County Coroner Tim Warco didn’t immediately release the inmate’s name, because his family had yet to be notified.

Guard at the Washington County Correctional Facility, about 20 miles southwest of Pittsburgh, last spoke with the inmate about 5:30 p.m. Monday, then found him hanging unresponsive about two hours later.

Guards and medical personnel tried to resuscitate the inmate but could not.

An autopsy was scheduled Tuesday.
