An inmate hanged himself at the Tri-County Jail (pictured) in Mechanicsburg Monday afternoon around 3:15.

The Champaign County Sheriff's Office reports that Loren Standley, 28, was found in his cell, which is a lock down pod not open to other inmates.

He was pronounced dead at the scene by Mechanicsburg EMS.

Standley was lodged on a parole violation out of Champaign County. He was released from prison in January 2012 after serving three years on a domestic violence charge.

The Champaign County Sheriff's Office, Madison County Sheriff's Office, and BCI continues their investigation.

It's the second suicide at the Tri-County Jail this year.

On April 7th, Ronnie Meadows, 34, was found unresponsive in her cell.
