Student Dies After Being Found Unresponsive in Prison Cell

Student Dies After Being Found Unresponsive in Prison Cell

( – Police arrested a sophomore at the University of Delaware on October 6 for possession of a firearm, aggravated menacing, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. It turns out the firearm was a BB gun, and the student, Quinn Annable, had allegedly been threatening and shooting individuals. But what happened to the 20-year-old student while he awaited arraignment was completely unexpected. On Wednesday, October 13, news of Annable’s death hit.

Corrections officers at a Wilmington detention center noticed him suffering from an unspecified “medical emergency” in his cell shortly before 11 p.m. on Wednesday, October 7. The jailers sprung into action and started performing CPR on Annable. An ambulance arrived minutes later, and CPR continued during the drive to a nearby hospital.

Officials at Christiana Hospital listed Annable in critical condition upon arrival. Sadly, the morning of Tuesday, October 12, Annable passed away. An autopsy is scheduled to determine the official cause of death.

A spokesperson for the Delaware Department of Corrections refused to comment when asked if Annable’s death resulted from attempted suicide.

No doubt, if convicted of a crime, Annable could have faced prison time. However, his death at such a young age was completely disproportionate to his alleged infractions.
