LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - An investigation is underway after a Harrison County corrections inmate died by suicide early Sunday morning.

Around 4:53 a.m., corrections officers went into 35-year-old Raymond Frederick Toops’ cell after he did not come to the door during the morning med pass.

A release from the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department said officers found Toops had attempted suicide by hanging.

They immediately performed CPR and requested EMS. Lifesaving efforts were unsuccessful and Toops died.

The Harrison County Sheriff’s Department called for an outside agency to investigate Toops’ death.
