Grand jury finds no wrongdoing in hanging death of Minnesota man in Nebraska jail cell


KIMBALL, Nebraska — A grand jury in Nebraska has found no wrongdoing in the death of a Minnesota man who was found hanging in a county jail cell earlier this year.

The Kimball County grand jury convened Nov. 9 to review the death of Jesus Estrada-Perez, of Minnesota.

Authorities say Estrada-Perez hung himself on Aug. 1, one day after he was arrested on drug charges during a traffic stop. He was hospitalized and died a few days later.

Authorities say his traveling companion told them that Estrada-Perez suffered from depression and anxiety and may have been suicidal.

Nebraska law requires that a grand jury be convened when an inmate dies in custody.
