Man arrested on federal parole warrant found hanging in cell

ATTALA COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A man wanted on federal parole violations is found hanging in his Attala County jail cell.

Sheriff Tim Nail said 48-year-old David Williams was found hanging from a belt around 3:40 Sunday morning. He was taken into custody earlier on a federal parole warrant.

According to the sheriff, deputies were called to Highway 19 south for a disturbance where Williams was on the scene.

Williams was alone in the cell before his body was discovered. 

In 2011 Williams entered a guilty plea to threatening President Obama and to blowing up UMMC.

An autopsy has been conducted, and MBI is assisting with the investigation.
