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.
