Inmate dies after weekend stabbing at Cook County Jail

Thursday, April 27, 2006
Chicago Tribune

A Cook County Jail inmate who had been stabbed in the back of the head during a weekend brawl in the maximum security unit died Wednesday morning.

Jeffrey Iniguez, 33, of Chicago, was pronounced dead shortly before 6 a.m. at Mt. Sinai Hospital, said a spokeswoman with the Cook County medical examiner's office.

Iniguez was one of seven inmates taken to hospitals Saturday evening--five of them with stab wounds--after a fight broke out in the day room of Division 11, which houses violent offenders such as murder suspects, said Bill Cunningham, a spokesman for the sheriff's department.

"We haven't exactly determined what set off the fight, but several inmates did join in based on gang affiliation," Cunningham said.

Sheriff's police recovered at least two homemade knives from the scene, he said. One was made from metal ripped from a fluorescent light fixture, he said.

All other inmates injured in the fight have since been returned to the jail, Cunningham said.

One of them is a suspect in Iniguez's death, Cunningham said, and sheriff's police are investigating. No charges have been filed.

The last fatal stabbing at the jail occurred in November 2004, he said. Last year, the jail saw 30 stabbings, Cunningham said.

Iniguez was in jail awaiting an appeal on a 2001 murder conviction.
