A Scott County jail inmate was found dead Monday night in an apparent suicide, coroner John Goble said.
Jeremy Lynn Alcorn, 22, of Georgetown hanged himself in the shower using his T-shirt, the coroner said.
Jail officials had not seen Alcorn for about 20 minutes before his body was found by other inmates.
Foul play is not suspected, Goble said.
Never miss a local story.
Alcorn, who was being held on a charge of third-degree criminal mischief, was not on suicide watch, according to jail records. He did not suffer from any mental illnesses and was not considered violent, records say.
