The Broward Sheriff’s Office is investigating the apparent suicide of an inmate who hung himself Saturday at the main jail.
Christopher Burner, 37, was found by another inmate hanging from a bed sheet in his cell around 1:10 p.m. in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
Burner was taken to Broward Health Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at about 1:57 p.m.
Burner had initially been charged with one count of felony battery by strangulation and two counts of battery.
During a court hearing Friday, a judge revoked Burner’s bail and he was taken into custody.
The Broward Medical Examiner’s Office will perform an autopsy to officially determine the cause and manner of death.
