Former Senate staffer Jesse Ryan Loskarn was found dead Thursday in Sykesville, Md., in an apparent suicide, according to the local sheriff’s office.
Loskarn, the former chief of staff for Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., was residing with his parents after being released into their custody following an arrest on child pornography charges. The deadline to bring an indictment against Loskarn, originally scheduled for this month, was delayed until Feb. 10.
The sheriff’s office said the case remains under investigation. A source who knew Loskarn said a family friend had been reaching out with the news. News of the apparent suicide was first reported by Politico.
