The man who killed himself in Santa Cruz County Jail on Sunday morning has been identified by the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office as Bradley Dreher.
The 47-year-old man was found at 11:20 a.m. in his cell after hanging himself. According to the Santa Cruz Sentinel, Dreher was an iron worker living in Soquel.
He had been arrested on Friday night on the felony charge of making threats. He was in a single cell and was given medication at 5 a.m. and checked on again at 10 a.m., where he showed no suspicious behavior, the sheriff's office said.
He was declared dead at 11:40, 20 minutes after he was found unconscious.
