RICHMOND (AP) - A Kentucky coroner says a Michigan fugitive being held at the Madison County jail died after hanging himself.
Coroner Jimmy Cornelison told The Richmond Register that the state medical examiner's office has confirmed the cause of 28-year-old Charles Franklin Hoffman's death.
Jailer Doug Thomas said Hoffman, of Hastings, Mich., was wanted for violating his parole.
Thomas said Hoffman was alone in an isolation cell when jail workers found him on Sunday. He said he wasn't sure why Hoffman was place there, but he did not think he was under suicide watch.
Kentucky State Police are continuing to investigate the death.
