The former chief of staff to Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn) arrested on child pornography charges last month has been found dead, according to police.
Jesse Ryan Loskarn, 35, died in an apparent suicide in his parents' house in Sykesville, Md., two other sources familiar with the matter said.
A release from the Carroll County Sheriff's Department said Loskarn was found in the home's basement and was unresponsive when authorities arrived after 12 p.m.
A preliminary investigation indicated that Loskarn had committed suicide, the sheriff's office said in a release.
It said Loskarn's body had been transported to the State Medical Examiners Office for an autopsy, and that the investigation would continue.
Loskarn had been released into his parents custody in mid-December after being charged with possession and distribution of child pornography.

Things tend to take care of themselves.
I haven’t been following this, how solid were the charges/evidence?
Dead men tell no tales.
Good. Nice and easy and no charge to the taxpayer.
The U.S. Postal Inspection Service arrested him, having to do with material he either received or sent via regular mail or both.
Now he’s killed himself.
Alexander fired him and replaced him almost immediately.
I would say “strong”.
As solid a trail as a government with unlimited funds and malice can "find" no doubt.
Who knows? The charges might even have been true, in the older sense of the word, the one that used to mean what did actually happen, not the current one which means what the government says actually happened...
Good Lord, what is with these chomo creeps? I just don’t get it.
In Japan it would be the honorable ting to do
Thankfully, I know nothing about child porn. Where do they get the children? Are they kidnapped or given by parents? I am shocked there really is a market for this. How many sick people are out there?
Was this homosexual child porn?
Seems like a lot of so called political staffers and political experts have this sick perversion of liking children as sex objects.
Maybe they do—but FGS! did he have to do it at his parent’s home? How much more horrible does that make it for his family?
Alexander fired him and replaced him almost immediately.
That was a political move on Lamar’s part..
hes facing strong competition in the primary this year..
Released to parents custody???? This is a 35 year old man, not a teenager.
I know that.
My point had been to another, seems like a very strong case against him, too.
The release to parents was unrelated to his age.
As a child porn defendant, if he was to get out of jail somebody had to be in charge of knowing his whereabouts and activities.
Those people who were to be in charge of keeping track while he awaited adjudication were his parents.
If somebody couldn’t handle that necessity, he would have been in jail all this time.
That wouldn’t be bad from society’s POV, but normally an attorney will try to arrange something to get the client out of jail and looks like this was it.
The weather outside is too cold.......................
A lot of the children come from Eastern Europe.
If he had a D on there, he’d have a good chance to get off. Or if he had been arrested in Sandusky Ohio
That proves nothing. Alexander would do that regardless, even if the man were a saint.
Getting/sending the material is evidence. Not to put too fine a point on it, but did the charges give any detail as to what acts pictured constituted child porn? On one hand I don't want to know the details. OTOH, my over abiding distrust of the government demands something more than "trust us".
If he had been a staffer of Ted Cruz, I would demand to see the evidence before I believed the government. These are very venal and corrupt people in the JD. Some of them no higher on the moral totem pole than this guy.
In Japan, kiddie porn is legal
I’m not a shrink and I don’t play one on TV. I am basically summarizing from memory a report put out by the Catholic Church on the priest scandal some time ago. This info may by now be outdated or amended or completely refuted.
In a nutshell, this particular psycho-sexual disorder (homosexual pedophilia) stems from a very stunted sense of masculinity or manhood. A sense of masculinity not formed or not fully formed. I’m not excusing their behavior, just trying to explain it, as I read in the report. Somewhere along the line, their emotional levels never fully developed or matured. As such, they can only relate to children, unfortunately inappropriately and criminally. I would wager that if you looked into their backgrounds, you would find a lot of them having had a dysfunctional relationship with one or both parents, likely dad. Their dads either ignored them, belittled them, or were toothless, cowering wimps. Yes, many millions of boys grew up under similar circumstances and turned out just fine. But some didn’t and they ended up with a lifelong void that could not be filled through normal adult relationships.
It’s legal in Tokyo and Nagano Japan. so I expect some of it comes from there. There are a LOT of bad parents out there, nudist colonies where they make a bunch of it.
Bunch of sicko’s in this world.
If he did it right, he would not have time to get cold-——
What an utterly lost soul. I can only shake my head.
Yup. My thoughts exactly. He wasn’t getting these file w/o others. Who else got them, who else provided them, who turned him in and why...
The reelect Lamar for Senate commercials on Nashville TV are frequent & somewhat eerie in tone, as though photographed through a gauze filter.
Anyway, his perv sicko staffer won’t bother his campaign anymore. Sometimes the garbage takes itself out.
Good for him.
Um, does the distinction matter to you?
I wonder if it matters to the elitist slug Senator he worked for? I would give a spittoon full of spit for Corker or Lamar.
‘Self’ hanging is a favorite wet works method ... autopsy should be done quickly, to catch traces of certain drugs used to ‘handle’ the victim into their demise.
Both should go to jail or blow their brains out.
Its all about POWER.
It is about mentally ill perversion in control with power!
