Lt. Carl Minden with the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office has released details on an apparent inmate suicide attempt last night at the Pulaski County Regional Detention Center. Minden  said the inmate, Donald Rackley, 46, died this afternoon. 

According to an incident report in the case, just after 7 p.m. last night, a guard discovered Rackley sitting in his cell on the floor with one end of a sheet tied around his neck and the other end of the sheet tied to the top bunk in his cell. Officers administered CPR until paramedics arrived, at which point Rackley was transported to UAMS.

Minden said that an investigation will be conducted by the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Division, but adds that at this point, there doesn't appear to be anything suspicious about the death.
