A San Francisco man being held in a Sonoma County jail died Friday after cutting himself on the wrist, a sheriff’s office spokesman said today. Neils Conrad, 55, was found unconscious in a bathroom at the North County Detection Facility around 9:25 p.m. with a self-inflicted wound to the wrist, according to Lt. Dennis O’Leary. He was taken to a hospital and declared dead at 10:17 p.m.

Several inmates told investigators that Conrad had been depressed due to family issues and impending homelessness. The self-inflicted wound is thought to be the cause of death, but that will not be known for certain until an autopsy is completed, O’Leary said. Conrad was being held on a parole and probation violation, and had been in custody in Sonoma County four times since 2008, O’Leary said.
