The Riverfront Times tells the story of Tyrone McCollough Jr., a 17-year-old St. Louis resident who apparently hung himself in his jail cell and later died at St. Louis University Hospital. An emergency room doctor and a sheriff's deputy guarding McCollough's hospital both told his family that he may not have committed suicide. McCollough's family thinks he may have been beaten, however, authorities say the case is closed.
