According to JoEllen Smith, the jail spokeswoman said that Billy Slagle, was found at about 5 a.m. at the Chillicothe Correctional Institution south of Columbus and was declared dead within the hour.

Billy was arrested when he was 18-year-old and because of the death of his neighbor for fatally stabbing Mari Anne Pope 17-times inside her home.

Smith said to her email, "It does appear to be a suicide," she added, "He was in his cell alone. No other inmates suspected to be involved."

And sad to say, the parole board and Gov. John Kasich both rejected mercy for Billy Slagle.
