Sad, strange news coming out of the Cuyahoga County jail this morning. Last night, suspected burglar Albert Fabian Jr. died after guards found him choking alone in his cell. When EMS arrived on the scene, they tried to save the 47 year-old Parama man by removing the offending object — an empty deodorant container, 1 inch wide and 1.5 inches long.
Fabian was rushed to St. Vincent Charity hospital but died at around 6:45. The Plain Dealer this morning has the details. No word on whether it was a suicide attempt or if Fabian was just passing the time chewing on the deodorant when things went horribly wrong.
