The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating the death of James Blackburn, 31, formerly of Warren, as a possible suicide following his death Tuesday in the Lebanon Correctional Institution in Warren County, according to the Columbus Dispatch.

Blackburn was serving a 21-year prison sentence that began in 2006 for raping a young boy in 2005. Blackburn was found in his cell at 2:09 a.m. and pronounced dead 20 minutes later.

Blackburn’s death would mark the eighth suicide in Ohio prisons this year.
