State says Ohio prisoner commits suicide

Published: Fri, October 25, 2013 @ 12:58 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — The state says a prison inmate has committed suicide. It’s the fourth case of an Ohio prisoner killing himself in three months and the ninth inmate suicide this year.

The report comes as outside consultants brought in by the Department of Rehabilitation and Correction review inmate suicides and the agency’s anti-prevention policies.

The prisons department said today that Kimball Kenaga was found Wednesday in a closet with a vacuum cord around his neck attached to a fire sprinkler in the ceiling at Ross Correctional Institution.

Kenaga was serving 30 years to life on charges of aggravated murder, aggravated arson, aggravated burglary and burglary out of Scioto County and burglary out of Ross County.

The prisons agency says the 47-year-old Kenaga was in prison for the fifth time.

You're sick. You know this right?
Our correctional system is a nightmare and that's not right.

How am I sick? This person committed aggravated murder, aggravated arson and more.

How is that a problem with "our correctional system" if this person doesn't want to face the consequences of his actions?
