Milwaukee - On Sunday, the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office identified an inmate who committed suicide on Christmas day while being held at the Criminal Justice Facility (Milwaukee County jail), at 949 N. 9th St. The inmate was identified as Manuel Matamoros, 44, who was charged last Tuesday with repeated sexual assault of a child.
Matamoros around 7:00 a.m. on Saturday jumped off a Mezzanie inside the County jail to his death while prisoners watched him hit the floor. Milwaukee County Sheriff deputies transported Matamoros to a nearby hospital where he died several hours later.
Matamoros was scheduled to appear before a preliminary hearing on December 30. He was being held on a $10,000 bail, according to the criminal complaint.
