PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) -

Officials are investigating an apparent suicide at the Jackson County Adult Detention Center. The inmate is Daryl Peoples, a 51-year-old Pascagoula resident.

According to his wife, Carla Peoples, their daughter called Pascagoula police Monday after having dispute with her father. Peoples was later arrested on an unknown charge and taken to the ADC because the Pascagoula Police Department recently closed its jail.

According to Sheriff Charles Britt, Peoples hanged himself in his cell.

The case has been turned over to the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation.

Jackson County's NAACP President Curley Clark says Peoples' family has asked the organization to launch its own investigation into the hanging. Clark says the family wants to make sure the death was self-inflicted.
