USA: Juan Cruz-Suarez, another death by detention

from Green Bay News-Chronicle:

A 46-year-old inmate who apparently hanged himself at the Brown County Jail on Friday was an illegal immigrant waiting to be deported to El Salvador, the Brown County Medical Examiner's office said.

Juan Cruz-Suarez was a Green Bay Dressed Beef employee who had family in Green Bay and in El Salvador. He was in jail on a hold for the Immigration and Naturalization Service, according to the examiner's office.
Jail staff performed CPR and other methods of resuscitating the victim. Gossage said Cruz-Suarez had been under special observation less "invasive" than a suicide watch. He said he could not disclose the reason for the special observation.
