PORT ANGELES — An independent investigator will review a Sequim man’s suicide last month in the Clallam County jail, Prosecutor Chris Shea said Friday.
A standard death investigation by county sheriff’s detectives found that Cannon Maynock, 23, hanged himself March 6 in his medical-isolation cell after denying suicidal intentions during a standard booking interview. He used a sheet to suspend himself from a conduit in the single-occupant cell.
Maynock, who was being held on suspicion of stealing his parent’s truck, died two days later at Olympic Memorial Hospital.
Shea, who serves as the county’s chief coroner, said he plans to ask an outside agency, possibly the Kitsap County sheriff’s department, to review the investigation to resolve any public concern.For the complete story see Sunday’s Peninsula Daily News, on sale in Clallam and Jefferson counties.
