Menard Prison Suicide



An inmate serving time for murder has been found dead in his cell at the Menard Correctional Center.
 
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 prisoner was not immediately 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.
