Inmate’s Death Ruled Suicide
CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — An inmate who died at the Natrona County jail in March committed suicide.
Thirty-two-year-old Larry Turner, Jr. was found dead March 24, a day after being booked into the jail for allegedly violating his bond.
According to the Associated Press, Natrona County coroner Connie Jacobson said that Turner intentionally overdosed on morphine and left a note explaining his intention. She said Turner probably took the morphine before entering jail. She said it’s possible to die the day after taking an overdose of the drug.
Turner was set to stand trial for a car crash that killed a man in October. He faced a possible life sentence if convicted because of prior felony convictions.
