Loudoun County Adult Detention Center

The Loudoun County Adult Detention Center is located in Leesburg off Sycolin Road.

Update: June 15, 2:22 p.m.

The deceased was a 44-year-old Ashburn man, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.

The Times-Mirror is not disclosing the deceased's name because his arrest was related to an incident with a juvenile. The newspaper wishes to protect the juvenile's identity.

The deceased, who was white, was arrested following a domestic-related assault on June 10. He was charged with abduction, strangulation of another, cruelty and injuries to children, abuse and neglect of children, assault on a family member and violations of multiple protective orders.

According to the LCSO, the Virginia Department of Corrections requires two security checks per hour at all local jails and lock ups in Virginia.

This is the second suicide at the Loudoun Adult Detention Center since the facility opened in 2007.
