HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — Washington County’s sheriff says a West Virginia man was found dead in his cell at the county detention center after an apparent suicide.

Sheriff Doug Mullendore says Robert Alan Conner, 23, of Bunker Hill, W.Va., choked himself with a bedsheet and was found dead Sunday morning. He says the death was a suicide but officials must complete the investigation as standard procedure.

Mullendore says Conner did not have a cellmate at the detention center.

Police say Conner was charged Friday after an armed robbery of a Sheetz store south of Hagerstown and was being held on a $500,000 bond.

      This kid made a mistake. Completely out of character for him. He didn’t kill or hurt anybody! You would be lucky to have a friend like him. If you have no respect for him, then have respect for his friends and family! I pray that nothing like this happens to you or your family ….
