Father Killed Himself After Separation from Family at US Border


A Honduran father separated from his wife and child suffered a breakdown at a Texas jail and took his own in a padded cell last month, according to Border Patrol agents and an incident report filed by sheriff's deputies.

The death of Marco Antonio Muñoz, 39, has not been publicly disclosed by the Department of Homeland Security and did not appear in any local news accounts.

But according to a copy of a sheriff's department report obtained by The Washington Post, Mr Muñoz was found on the floor of his cell on 13 May in a pool of blood with an item of clothing twisted around his neck.

Starr County sheriff's deputies recorded the incident as a "suicide in custody."
