HARRISON COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - An inmate at the Harrison County Jail died last night after an apparent suicide attempt.

Julius Eugene Maloy III, 32, was found unconscious in his cell, and authorities say it looks as though he tried to hang himself.

Jail staff initiated CPR and Marshall EMS continued it while transporting Maloy to Good Shepherd Medical Center Marshall. Despite all efforts, he was pronounced dead by Emergency Room doctors.

Maloy had been confined in Harrison County Jail since March 15th on an arrest warrant for Revocation of Probation for Assault Family Violence. He had been moved to a separation cell on March 24th for medical reasons and placed on a medical observation watch.

The death is currently being investigated by the Harrison County District Attorney's Office, the Texas Rangers and the Harrison County Sheriff's Office.
