PONTIAC (WWJ) – An investigation is underway to find out more about an Oakland County Jail inmate who died after jumping from a second floor railing.

The 54-year old Ricky Bell of Holly was reportedly doing time for probation violation related to domestic violence. The Sheriff’s Department says Bell walked out of his cell on Wednesday afternoon and started to climb the second floor mezzanine rail then dove off.

A deputy tried to catch Bell, who died a short time later at POH Regional Medical Center.

He was supposed to be released in late August.
