Sheriff: “Jails Are A Dangerous Place To Be”

So do your best to stay out of them.

“Jails and prisons by their very nature are violent institutions and I’ve always said we need a new jail and more deputies,” the sheriff said. “We’re no different than any jail around the state. We all share the problem of overcrowding.”

However, he said, “Nothing could have stopped what Jesse Crow did. He was very determined and it was very well thought out.”

Sheriff’s Cmdr. Mike Richards confirmed Monday that Crow used parts of his bed sheet to hang himself. He used the same sheets to tie his cell door closed to delay deputies who found him hanging. He waited until the early morning hours, when other inmates were sleeping, and hanged himself after a bed check.
