Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison is disputing a state investigation’s findings that an 18-year-old inmate who hanged himself in the county detention center nearly six months ago lacked proper supervision.

In a four-page letter to state officials, Harrison said Jose Humberto Lara-Pineda was being booked and was not in a part of the jail subject to the state’s supervision regulations. Even if the regulations did apply, Harrison said Lara-Pineda showed no signs he was suicidal, which would have triggered a special watch.

Lara-Pineda was arrested in the early morning of March 21 and charged with first-degree murder in the strangulation death of Fredys Odilo Cid Ramos, 28, in Raleigh. Lara-Pineda was found hanging that afternoon in a corner cell in the detention center’s booking area. He died three days later at WakeMed.
