Chatham Inmate Hangs Himself
Posted January 2, 1999
PITTSBORO — A Chatham County Jail inmate accused of killing his wife and wounding his daughter has hanged himself in his cell.
Investigators say Jesse Brewer went on a rampage back in April because he believed his wife was having an affair.
The 53-year-old inmate was found dead Friday.
The sheriff says Brewer used bedsheets to make a noose around his neck.
He was not on a suicide watch.
