Suicide Inside County Jail – Second in 30 Days

BROOKSVILLE – Yesterday, RNRF received reports of another suicide inside the Hernando County Jail. Officials remained tight lipped on the incident until late this morning, when they released the full details, confirming the self-inflicted death of an inmate.
According to officials, around 5:30 p.m. a detention deputy on a second floor balcony observed (through a window) an inmate hanging from his cell door.
The deputy immediately sounded a call for assistance and removed the inmate from the cell door.

Fire Rescue responded and performed CPR on the inmate; however despite all their efforts, the victim was pronounced deceased at the scene.
An initial review of the Detention Center’s video equipment found that one of the many jail cameras captured the event. It was found the inmate approached the cell door and took his own life approximately 15 minutes before he was found.

The inmate, identified as 59-year-old Bruno Paul Mirabella, was booked into the Hernando County Detention Center on the same day at 1:25 p.m. He was arrested by Hernando County deputies on a misdemeanor warrant for Violation of Probation (original charge – Driving While License Suspended or Revoked). Mirabella had been arrested at his home and transported to the Detention Center without incident.

It should be noted that every inmate is thoroughly screened during the booking process. Inmate Mirabella was not placed on any special conditions as a result of this initial screening.
Officials say the investigation remains active.
This marks the second inmate suicide inside the jail, in just over thirty days. On February 3rd 26-year-old Justin Michael Simonds was found unresponsive and died, after an apparent suicide. The cause of his death has not been released by officials.

  • My boyfriend was jailed there and his canteen got stolen right out of his cell. Camera’s were right there to identify the thieves, the co refused to look at the camera’s, they told him that was his bad. I worked to hard for that money for them just to allow people to steal. Smh. Internal affairs needs to do some thorough investigation in that facility.

  • I personally knew bruno and cared for him as a friend very much this hurts me more then you could imagine but one thing is they need to screen people a little better because i know he had severe depression and had PTSD from the 9/11 tragedy, if they would maybe check people a little better they could know this and put the people who need it in a spot where they can watch and help them….. RIP Uncle Bruno We will all love and miss you very very much!!!!
