A 62-year old suspected bank robber at the Alexandria Jail died at Inova Alexandria Hospital after a suicide attempt on May 18, the Sheriff’s Office said in a release.
Christopher Lapp was found unresponsive in his cell at 1:37 a.m., and he later died at 6:32 p.m. that same day. The manner of his death was not released.
Lapp allegedly robbed a Wells Fargo Bank in Great Falls in 2018, and suffered from severed mental issues, according to the Washington Post. He was transferred to the Alexandria Jail in March.
The Post also found that a clinician at the jail discontinued giving him psychotropic medication “after a staff clinician opined Lapp was not mentally ill.”
“Because this is an in-custody death, the Alexandria Police Department will conduct the death investigation, the Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. “In addition, the Sheriff’s Office is conducting its own internal review.”
