A prisoner who was in an isolation cell was found hanging by a sheet from the ceiling and the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff says it was suicide.  Sheriff Jack Strain says 40-year-old Alan Jackson of Slidell had been in jail since last month on a parole violation and drug charges.  Strain says Jackson was last seen alive during a cell check at about 11 a.m. and was discovered hanging about five hours later. The Sheriff says Jackson was not in the isolation cell on suicide watch but because of disruptive behavior.
