Craig Ingersoll Hangs Himself In Jail Cell

Gino Geruntino, WIBX

The New York State Department of Corrections and Oneida County District Attorney, Scott McNamara, are confirming that Craig Ingersoll was found hanging in his cell at the Attica Correctional Facility at 9:40pm on Tuesday, March 19, 2013.

The incident is under investigation by the Department of Corrections, State Police, and the State Commission of Correction.

Ingersoll had been behind bars since February 25th, but was transferred to Attica Correctional Facility earlier that day.

He hung himself with a shoelace and was unresponsive when guards found him. Security staff at the facility performed CPR to try and revive him, but were unsuccessful.  Once an ambulance arrived, EMT staff phoned Wyoming County Community Hospital, and he was pronounced dead an hour later by Dr. Pecoraro.

Ingersoll was sentenced last month to serve 25 years to life for the death of 29 year-old Jennifer Bennett, in 2007. Bennett’s body was discovered by a group of sledders behind the Deerfield Fire House Pavillion.

Had the incident not occurred,  Ingersoll, 31, would not be eligible for release until June 3, 2037.
