Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli says a man being held at the Hackensack police station committed suicide.
The man, whose name was not disclosed, was found around 6:30 p.m. Friday in a holding cell. It was not clear why the man was in custody or how long he had been in custody.
Molinelli says the man used a T-shirt to hang himself, but further details on the death were not disclosed Saturday morning.
Molinelli says the death is under investigation, which is standard policy when a person dies while in custody.
