Default Death Row Inmate found Hanging in Cell.

Facing lethal injection in a matter of days, Ohio murderer Billy Slagle was found hanged in his prison cell early Sunday, state corrections officials said.

Slagle was discovered hanged at the Chillicothe Correctional Institution just after 5 a.m. Sunday and was pronounced dead about an hour later, said Jo Ellen Smith, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections. He was to have been put to death by injection Tuesday, Smith said.

Slagle had been on death row since 1988, convicted of murder after stabbing a neighbor to death in her Cleveland home. Ohio's parole board voted 6-4 against his petition for clemency in June, and Gov. John Kasich denied his request on July 24.

Seems one less murder in our world today. I cannot decide if I hate him for cheating his way out of an execution or for the fact someone else might have possibly hanged him. Thoughts, comments?

He took the cowards way. But on a positive note.......
Wish he wouldve saved the tax payers money by doing it sooner.

I weep at the loss of such a contributing member of society. Truly we are worse off.

Said no one ever.

I suppose it could be said that anticipation of death is worse than death itself.

He has had the last laugh. He took the states money to keep him alive while he was there and then cheated the victims family of their retribution.

However. Most states with the death sentence are quite biblical.

He sat the injection, would have had a minister. Had the opportunity to atone in heaven before judgement.

But nope, suicide, cardinal sin, down you go!

Seriously, am I the only one who thinks the thing we should be annoyed about is the fact that he has been on Death Row since 1988? WTF? I know the police/whatever needs sometime after a conviction to ensure the convicted weren't declared so wrongly, but seriously, 25 years? If I were an american taxpayer this is what would piss me off the most.

Really, it hardly matters how the man died and as much as some might think he had the last laugh I very much doubt anyone, including the victims family, really cares about this guy anymore.

I too feel death row should be as fast as possible. Sadly they appeal, and appeal etc. I believe they should get 1 appeal, and once thats wasted...within 30 days you stop stealing oxygen.

Sadly theres a lot of anti death penelty people that fight for those on death row to be a drain on tax payer money. I understand the criminal justice system is not perfect and people get falsy accused etc. Hence the one appeal. Again people will still slip though the cracks etc. No system is perfect, but theres a lot more CJ Sytems that are worse.

Only (definitively) by dead people.

Strange, but not a Stranger.
