MICHAEL COATS
Inmate's Suicide At Boyle County Jail Proves Devastating To Staff
By Erin Milburn
Herald Staff Writer
Boyle County Jailer, Chris Hill, has had a lot to deal with in the past week.
Last Wednesday, Michael W. Coats, 37, of 205 Daisy St, Harrodsburg, was
delivered to the jail by Mercer County officials following an arrest on charges
of fourth offense, felony drunken driving and a misdemeanor charge of driving on
a suspended license.
On Friday morning, Coats was found dead in his cell, the victim of an apparent
suicide.
Since then, Hill and his staff have been trying to deal with the grief and shock
of the incident as well as the local publicity involved in any matter such as
this.
"It's a terrible tragedy," said Hill. "We are all very torn up over it."
Hill explained that his deputies had been very involved with Coats from the
moment he had been brought in. One of the deputies, John McKeown, spent a good
deal of time in personal conversation with Coats, who was distraught over the
recent loss of his best friend, as well as the very real possibility of going to
prison if convicted of his fourth drunken driving charge.
"(Deputy McKeown) had really established a personal relationship with (Coats),"
said Hill. "When he found him on Friday morning, it was a real blow."
The jail staff had taken great precautions with Coats when he was first brought
in, due to his unstable state of mind at that time, but according to Hill, after
Coats had spoken with Comprehensive Care psychologist Dr. Stephen Applegate, and
at Applegate's suggestion, the deputies moved Coats from the isolation cell
where he had been to a slightly upgraded cell, still isolated, but containing
bathroom facilities, to make him more comfortable. Hill also explained that the
deputies continued to check on him regularly until Thursday morning, when he
seemed to be in better spirits and no longer appeared to pose any threat to
himself.
Reports state that the last time the staff checked on Coats was at 9:23 a.m. on
Friday morning, when he appeared to be asleep. He was found dead at 10:12 a.m.,
having hanged himself with his shirt and a metal shower enclosure bar.
Boyle County Coroner, Dr. James Ramey, said Friday that the death was an
apparent suicide and that no foul play was indicated. Results are pending from
an autopsy done in Frankfort on Saturday.
According to Hill, although he and his staff realize there's probably nothing
they could have done to prevent the tragedy, that knowledge has done little to
relieve their anguish over the situation.
"(Coats) left the saddest note," Hill said. "It broke all our hearts to read
it."
According to Hill, the note detailed a life riddled with recent trauma and loss.
Coats had suffered a severe injury a couple of years ago, after falling off the
roof at the King Middle School in Harrodsburg. Although greatly traumatized by
the fall, Coats had had to return to work, because Worker's Compensation
benefits ran out. Then, earlier this year, he lost his mother unexpectedly, then
he witnessed his best friend's death due to a fall from a construction site and
was, in fact, on his way home from that friend's funeral in Tennessee, when he
wrecked his car in Harrodsburg. Arrested for drunken driving for the fourth
time, he was facing an almost certain prison sentence. According to Hill, the
stress was evidently more than he could bear.
Although Hill is deeply sorrowful over Coats untimely death, his primary concern
at this time is the welfare of his staff.
"We are all exhausted and emotionally drained," he said in a phone interview
Tuesday. "We have all received counseling from Dr. Tom Huckleberry from
Comprehensive Care and that has helped a lot. Of course, we have to continue and
go on from here, but, believe me, this is something none of us will ever
forget."
Michael W. Coats is survived by his father, Roy Coats, Jr., of Killen AL.; his
wife, Nora Riley Coats; two sons, Mark Anthony Riley and James Michael Yates,
both of Harrodsburg; one daughter, Leigha Nicole Coats of Harrodsburg; and two
sisters, Mary Hyde and Kathleen Coats, both of Killen, AL.
