BEAUFORT, N.C. (AP) — Authorities are investigating two hangings in jails in eastern North Carolina.

Area media outlets report that the State Bureau of Investigation is investigating a hanging in the Onslow County jail Tuesday night. No other details were immediately available.

The Carteret County Sheriff’s Office reports that an inmate who hanged himself last week at the county jail died Tuesday.

Authorities say 50-year-old Donald Hall of Newport was found hanging in his cell August 7. He was taken to an area hospital where he later died. Hall was awaiting court appearances on drug and traffic charges.
