An inmate in his 60s at the Theo Lacy Facility in Orange died Monday of an apparent suicide.

The man, who was housed at the maximum security jail, located at 501 The City Drive South, was pronounced dead about 2 p.m., according to the Orange County Sheriff Department’s Public Affairs Director Carrie Braun.

He was booked into the Orange County Jail in April for burglary-related charges, Braun said.

The Orange County District Attorney’s Office will investigate the man’s death and the Orange County Sheriff’s Department will conduct an in-custody death review, according to Braun.

The inmate’s name was not released pending notification of next of kin.
