Authorities in Warren County say an inmate is dead after an apparent suicide inside his jail cell.

On Saturday, Oct. 4, 2013,  49-year-old Robert Stauffer of Little York, Ill. was found dead in his cell around 11:30 a.m. The Warren County Sheriff's Office says he died by apparent hanging. An autopsy was performed Sunday, but the results are not back yet.

Stauffer was arrested earlier that morning on a warrant for failure to register as a sex offender. During the arrest, agents with a drug task force also searched Stauffer's home and say they seized meth-making materials in the garage. He faced additional charges of unlawful participation in methamphetamine manufacturing and was being held while awaiting a bond hearing.
