A Mexican man who was arrested on an immigration charge hanged himself in the El Paso County Jail.
Norberto Santa Cruz, 42, of Juárez, was arrested on a warrant for an illegal reentry charge, a sheriff’s spokeswoman told the El Paso Times.
Santa Cruz died Saturday, a week after he was on life support following the attempted suicide.
The motive is unclear because no note was found.
Santa Cruz was arrested on March 3 after climbing onto a train and illegally crossing the order.
