CLINTON COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - An autopsy for the Clinton County inmate found dead inside his cell is scheduled for Tuesday morning.
Clinton County Sheriff Jeff Ward said the autopsy for 27-year-old Malcolm Adams will take place at 11:00 a.m.
Adams was found unresponsive by a corrections officer around 4:45 Sunday afternoon. Ward said they can't say exactly what happened until after the autopsy, but said they don't suspect foul play.
"Just from the manner in which our corrections officer found Mr. Adams, it was really apparent to us that he had tried to take his own life," said Ward.
News 18 has been in contact with members of Adams' family. Family members tell us that he was having suicidal tendencies, and that he should have been watched.
Ward said is aware that Adams had suicidal issues a few months ago, but said he had been cleared by a psychiatrist. He said he wants the family to know he's thinking about them.
"My condolences go out to the family," said Ward. "His mom, dad, brothers, and sisters. I'm very sorry that they're having to experience this."
Adams was booked into the jail back in July for theft.

The drop in temperatures brings the potential for health dangers, such as hypothermia and frost bite. The bitter temperatures can pose a threat for children, adults and pets.
As it stands Wednesday, there will be no FEMA aid for tornado survivors in Howard County.
