ALBANY, Ga. (AP) - A Dougherty County jail inmate has died after
he apparently hanged himself in his cell.
County Coroner Emma Quimbley said 56-year-old Lester Lee Goodman
died Thursday evening after he was found hanging in his cell.
Sheriff's Lt. Lance Montgerard said deputies found Goodman
unresponsive at about 6:40 p.m.
Goodman was in jail for property-related crimes, but authorities
said he had an extensive criminal history.
Quimbley ruled the death a suicide.
An autopsy will be done at the state crime lab in Atlanta.
