The Allegany County Combined Criminal Investigation Unit identified the inmate as 27-year-old Vincent Paul Marion of Paw Paw, West Virginia. Officials said in a statement that Marion died early Tuesday at the Western Maryland Regional Medical Center.

Marion was taken to the hospital after he was found hanging in his cell early Friday. Officials say correctional officers began CPR and nurses helped while they waited for emergency workers to arrive.
