A second suicide in two weeks in prison

While a 31-year-old inmate committed suicide on November 9, prison staff had to deal with a second suicide this Sunday, November 21, 2021.

The guards made the macabre discovery during a routine check this Sunday morning. As Le Figaro recounts, the 51-year-old detainee was alone in his cell.

Locked in Colmar in the summer of 2020, then transferred to Strasbourg in September 2020, the detainee was known to the judicial services for acts of theft, violence and insult, and rape.

An investigation into the causes of death was opened by the Strasbourg prosecutor’s office.
