The suicide is the second within a week for the state, as an inmate at the Hartford Correctional Center took his life on August 21.

According to reports, at approximately 9 p.m., Saturday evening, correctional staff were made aware of an inmate who had tied a bed sheet around his neck. Officers found him with the other end of the sheet tied to the top bunk bed.
