Deputy Sheriff Lonnie Freeman was assaulted and strangulated by juvenile inmates at the Richmond City Jail.

The inmates attacked him during an escape attempt, tied him up and stuffed a cloth into his mouth. The cloth prevented him from breathing and he suffocated. The escape attempt was thwarted when another sheriff's deputy saw the juveniles outside of their cellblock and sounded an alarm.
