Morton County Sheriff Dave Shipman told the Bismarck Tribune that Jon Nadeau attempted suicide by hanging on Oct. 25. The sheriff said Nadeau died Monday, after his family removed him from life support at a local hospital.

Shipman said Nadeau had been an inmate at the jail since September.

Shipman said it was the jail’s first death since it opened in 1986.
