MENARD, Ill. • An inmate serving time for murder has been found dead in his cell at a prison in southwestern Illinois.
Illinois Department of Corrections spokesman Tom Shaer says the 30-year-old man died in an apparent suicide and was found Monday afternoon with a bed sheet around his neck.
The Randolph County Coroner was on the scene.
The prisoner was not immediately being identified by name pending notification of his family.
He was serving a 40-year sentence for murder and was housed in a single-person cell.
Shaer says there was nothing in man's behavior to indicate he was at risk of harming himself.http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/illinois/inmate-found-dead-in-cell-at-southern-illinois-prison/article_f9c71a2a-b8d6-512e-b2ae-d1f5bace6f83.html
