Inmate attempted suicide in the past

KENT COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - We're learning that an inmate who took his own life at the Kent County Jail had a history of mental illness.

Ryan Maddox was found hanging in his cell Monday.

M-Live reports court records show he had attempted to take his life once before while in prison.

Before being released in October he was diagnosed with schizophrenia and panic disorder.

The 28-year-old was re-arrested in November, accused of trying to strangle his mother.

This is the third death at the Kent County Jail since March.

The others were medical related.
