The Lynchburg sheriff says his staff acted properly before and after a
female prisoner hanged herself in a jail cell last week.
35-year old Manya Faye Brooks was arrested Friday afternoon on an assault
and battery charge.
Jailers placed Brooks in a cell and gave her a bedsheet after she complained
she was cold.
When they checked on Brooks about five minutes later, she had used the sheet
to hang herself.
Sheriff Lawrence Simpson says an internal investigation shows "no" mistakes
on the part of his staff.
He adds Brooks had been incarcerated several times before, and had never
shown suicidal tendencies.
