Michael Morris, the man accused of stabbing his wife and hitting multiple people with an SUV on Wednesday, has died while in custody.
Morris died sometime Thursday night.
A source tells RTV6 he hanged himself using a shoelace.
A spokesperson from the Marion County Sheriff's Office said he was found at 9:34 p.m. Thursday in the basement of the City-County Building. No foul play is suspected, but a follow-up investigation will be conducted by members of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, the sheriff's office, and the Marion County Coroner's Office.
On Wednesday, Morris allegedly stabbed his wife in the stomach then took her vehicle -- a silver Ford Edge -- and drove downtown, where he hit five pedestrians and one motorcyclist.
