Hillsboro Inmate Death Ruled Suicide
The death of an inmate at Graham Correctional Center in Hillsboro is officially being ruled a suicide.
The Montgomery County Coroner said Christoper G. Nichol, 26, hanged himself with a bedsheet Tuesday night. Nichol's cellmate found him after returning from the prison gymnasium.
An Illinois Department of Corrections spokeswoman said the matter is under investigation. State records show Nichol was eight months into a six-year term for aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a victim older than five.
