LIBERTY — An inmate at the Liberty County Jail has died from apparent self-inflicted wounds. 

According to Liberty County Sheriff’s Capt. David Meyers, John McComb was transported by ambulance to the Liberty-Dayton Regional Medical Center Thursday in critical condition.  

After arriving at LDRMC, it was decided he needed to be transported to a larger medical facility that could treat his injuries. 

According to Meyers, McComb succumbed to his injuries around 6:30 p.m. Friday. 

McComb had an extensive arrest history and was being held in the county jail with no bond on charges of Aggravated Assault and a parole violation. 

According to Meyers, the LCSO and Texas Rangers are investigating, with the Rangers taking the lead.
