A 30-year-old Plymouth County Correctional Facility inmate awaiting trial in connection with the deaths of two men in Hingham back in 2005, has died.

According to a statement from the correctional facility, Eric Snow, a native of Bridgewater died early Saturday at Jordan Hospital from apparent self inflicted injuries.

Snow, who was alone at the time, according to a prepared statement released Saturday, was found nonresponsive in his cell shortly after 6 a.m. and transported by ambulance to the nearby hospital.

Snow and co-defendant James Winquist were awaiting trial on homicide charges relating to the May 2005 deaths of two men found in a bunker at Bare Cove Park in Hingham. The two victims were believed to be living in the wooded area of the Bare Cove Park in Hingham when they were murdered.

Snow was indicted by a Plymouth County Grand Jury in 2007.  The pair were slated to go on trial in May of this year.

A statement released Saturday morning by a spokesman for Sheriff Joseph McDonald says, “An investigation is being conducted by the Plymouth County District Attorney and the Massachusetts State Police.”
