Default San Quentin prisoner dies after falling off fourth tier

I heard about this incident and was told he was very depressed and/or suicidal and that he is thought to have thrown himself off. So I looked it up online and found this article (link below). I don't know if what I heard was accurate, but my first reaction when I heard it was "another person with mental health problems, not receiving adequate care." I have to emphasize that this is rumor (the suicidal/depressed part), but I think we should watch for follow-ups. I mean, how does someone "fall" from a fourth tier? Very sad, no matter what the crime was.

P.S. The incident has been reported to the Prison Law Office for follow-up.

Later articles I have seen today state the coroner believes it was suicide.
