Manhunt suspect had taken his own life, Fremont County Coroner’s office reports

(Riverton, Wyo.) – The Fremont Coroner’s Office reported Wednesday that a man being sought for a slashing attack on another man in Riverton in July died at  his own hand. Chief Deputy Coroner Mark Stratmoen said Angelo J. Jenkins’ death was ruled a suicide as the result of exsanguination, or loss of blood. The manner of the blood loss was not revealed.

Jenkin’s body was found behind a residence near Arapahoe seated in a vehicle. At the time, Jenkins was the subject of an active manhunt after an altercation at a Riverton house party had left one man eviscerated from a slashing knife wound.

The Verdict and Case Docket in the case revealed that Jenkins had traces of cannabis and alcohol in his system, at very low levels, and that he had taken a prescription dosage of a muscle relaxer that had been prescribed for him, well within therapeutic levels.

Jenkins, 35, died on July 14th.
