Nacogdoches County sheriff’s officials said jailers may not have been able to prevent a 26-year-old man from hanging himself a week ago in a detox cell.

“The detox cells are right up front, in the busiest corridor we have,” Sheriff Jason Bridges said. “It is out in the open as much as it can be. It was very much a shock that it happened there, or that any type of incident can happen there.”
