A Mississippi prison inmate hanged himself on Friday night, and other inmates live-streamed the hanging to their fans and followers on Instagram.
The inmate who hanged himself this weekend was imprisoned at the Leflore County Technical Violations Center. He is the second inmate - in a little more than a month - that was suspiciously found hanged inside his cell.
Last month Mark Anthony Dowdin, 36, was found hanging in his cell. According to an incident report from the Greenwood Police Department, officers received a call around 7 p.m. Dec. 4 in reference to a suicide attempt at the correctional facility.
Two officers found Dowdin lying on the floor of a cell. MedStat personnel were unsuccessfully trying to revive him.
Dowdin's family has come forward to question his death, they suspect foul play in his hanging and possible murder.
The Mississippi Department of corrections has not released any information on the deceased inmate in the video.
The Leflore County Technical Violations Center does NOT allow inmates to have cameraphones or internet access - but many inmates break the rules. In fact, there are at least a dozen inmates in the facility with active IG pages, and thousands of followers.
