Rudolf Hess, the last surviving member of Adolf Hitler's inner circle, apparently strangled himself with a length of electrical cord at the Spandau prison for war criminals where he had spent the last 40 years of his life, British officials disclosed Tuesday. Attempts were made to revive the 93-year-old Hess after he was found with the cable around his neck Monday, the British announcement said, but he was declared dead a short time later at the British Military Hospital.
