Around 12:00pm on August 10, 2023 a Deputy performing a routine check of incarcerated persons within their jail cells found a subject hanging within their cell, which was jointly occupied by another subject.
The San Rafael Fire Department was requested to respond to the Jail. The subject was transported to the hospital for life saving measures but was ultimately pronounced deceased on August 13th, 2023.
The Sheriff’s Office requested the San Rafael Police Department respond to conduct an independent investigation into the death of the incarcerated person.

No further information will be released from the Marin County Sheriff’s Office and any media inquiries related to the independent investigation should be directed to Sgt J. Graham with the San Rafael Police Department via their dispatch center, at (415) 485-3000.
