The Columbian

SHELTON — An inmate in the Mason County Jail at Shelton was found hanging about 1 a.m. today during an hourly bed check.

The sheriff’s office says the inmate was alone in the cell and had not indicated he was suicidal.

Det. William Adam tells KBKW that attempts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful.

Coroner Wes Stockwell identified the inmate as 27-year-old Jimi Lee Johnson, a member of the Skokomish Tribal Nation.
