        An inmate apparently committed suicide Wednesday at Lancaster County Prison, the third such incident this year.
        Prison staff found Ronald P. Snyder, 26, of Elizabethtown, hanging in his cell at 5:42 p.m. Wednesday, said Lancaster City Police Lt. Todd Umstead. Efforts to revive him were not successful.
    The beginning of today’s online article, “UPDATE: Police investigating death of Lancaster County Prison inmate as suicide,” (click here). 
        Jailed on Tuesday and dead by 5:42 Wednesday eveining. Will the prison warden and the board members resign?

        If there’s another suicide you should all fall on your sword,” Kent Kroehler told the Prison Board this morning.
        “If there’s a third suicide,” he continued, “You should all resign. This whole board should resign.”
    From LIP News, “NOT YOUR USUAL BOARD MEETING!“ on August 18th of this year (click here).


    One response to “THIRD PRISON DEATH THIS YEAR”

    1. Actually, I said that the Prison Board should resign if we had a third suicide “by jumping.” I did not say or mean a third suicide by other means.
