JOPPA, MD—A 26-year-old inmate at the Harford County Detention Center died on Friday after apparently hanging himself in his cell.
At just after 12:30 p.m., correctional officers found the inmate unresponsive in his cell with a sheet around his neck. Deputies immediately called for medical staff from the detention center and available deputies to respond and began lifesaving efforts.
Medical staff continued CPR and applied an AED for assistance, with no success.
The inmate, identified as Randy Craig Gisiner, of Joppa, was pronounced deceased at 1:21 p.m.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner was notified and responded to transport the body for an autopsy.
Gisiner was booked into the Detention Center on April 16 for charges related to CDS possession and unlawful taking of a motor vehicle. He was being held on no bond.
At the time of his death, Gisiner was not on a special watch or in restricted housing.
The investigation is ongoing. No further information is available at this time.
