Correction on GCSO Inmate Suicide

On Sunday July 22, 2018, 48-year-old Rodolfo Millan-Calderon committed suicide at the Gallatin County Detention Center. The Bozeman Police Department arrested Millan-Calderon Friday afternoon on a felony warrant from Cascade County Justice Court charging him with five counts of Incest.  His last listed residence was Great Falls.

At approximately 6:30 A.M., he was let out of his cell with other inmates for breakfast at which time he walked to the second level and jumped head first onto the floor below. Emergency medical efforts were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Because this was an in custody death we requested independent death and criminal investigations. Park County Coroner Al Jenkins was requested to take the case and determine cause and manner of death.  State law requires that a Coroner’s inquest be held.  The Montana Division of Criminal Investigation was requested to investigate any possible criminal acts.  Sheriff Gootkin stated, “There is no indication of any criminal act but we are going to make sure that this is fully and impartially investigated.”  This is an ongoing investigation therefore we cannot provide details of the incident but Sheriff Gootkin will be available for interviews and questions in the Detention Center community room at 3:00 P.M. today.
