SYKESVILLE, MD (AP) - The Maryland medical examiner's office says a former aide to U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander hanged himself in his parents' home, just weeks after his arrest on child pornography charges.

Spokesman Bruce Goldfarb says Ryan Loskarn was pronounced dead in Sykesville, Md., shortly after noon Thursday.

The Carroll County Sheriff's Office says family members reported finding Loskarn unresponsive in the basement where he had been living.

Loskarn had been allowed to live with his parents while awaiting trial on charges of possession and attempted distribution of child pornography. The 35-year-old also was required to be electronically monitored.

SYKESVILLE, Md. (AP) - A former aide to U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander has been found dead in Maryland, just weeks after the former staffer's arrest on child pornography charges.

The Carroll County Sheriff's office said on its website Friday that Ryan Loskarn was found dead Thursday in Sykesville, Md. Deputies say the preliminary investigation shows Loskarn may have committed suicide.

Loskarn had been allowed to live with his parents while he awaited trial on charges of possession and attempted distribution of child pornography.

The 35-year-old also was required to be electronically monitored while living with his parents.

Loskarn had been the chief of staff for Alexander, a Republican from Tennessee, for two years before his arrest. Loskarn was fired immediately after his arrest.
