A 40-year-old Mexican man detained in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody at a Georgia facility died as a result of apparent suicide, ICE said Friday in a statement.

Efrain De La Rosa died Tuesday at an area hospital near the Stewart Detention Facility in Lumpkin, Ga., after he was found unresponsive in his cell as a result of a strangulation, according to the statement.

De La Rosa died of "self-inflicted strangulation" according to the statement which notes that his death will be investigated.

ICE added in the press release that it notified authorities at the Mexican consulate of De La Rosa's death, who notified his next of kin.
