GRANBURY (AP) - The mother of a detained North Texas boy who died after allegedly putting a sheet around his neck during a tug of war says he had mental health issues.

Tonya Hernandez says she sought psychiatric help for 14-year-old Jordan Adams of Cleburne.

Police and probation officials are investigating what happened Oct. 10 when Adams allegedly played tug of war with another youth at the Granbury Regional Juvenile Justice Center. Adams, found unconscious in his cell, died Sunday at a hospital.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Tuesday reported that Adams was diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity and mood disorders.

He spent 10 days at the center after allegedly pulling a knife on his 17-year-old brother. Hernandez says Adams returned to the center this month after a fight on a school bus.
