PA- Inmate hangs himself in cell

5-4-2005 Pennsylvania:

An Allegheny County Jail inmate hanged himself in his cell early Tuesday, hours before he was scheduled to plead guilty to charges that he taped himself having sex with children.

Timothy Elkin Walker, 34, of Brookline, used pieces of his sheet and shoestrings to commit suicide, according to Warden Ramon Rustin and the county coroner's office. He died shortly after 4 a.m., the coroner's office said.

Walker's hanging comes despite new procedures put in place after Eugene DeLuca, a Chicago-area hit man who had been sentenced to life in prison without parole, hanged himself in his jail cell Jan. 12. Rustin said after that suicide that he ordered guards to check cells every half hour. Walker gave no indication that he planned to kill himself, Rustin said. ..News Source.. by The Tribune Review
