Investigators: Inmate Commits Suicide in Pickaway Co. Jail Cell

CIRCLEVILLE (Ken Hines) -- A man who was arrested twice this month in separate drug raids died Tuesday in an apparent suicide inside his jail cell.

Officers found Raymond Tackett Jr. hanging from a sheet at the Pickaway County Jail at approximately 4:30 a.m. Tackett, 32, was arrested on December 20 after allegedly trying to sell heroin and crack to an undercover deputy.

Tackett was also arrested during a drug raid at a Ross County trailer on December 11. One of Tackett's alleged accomplices, Crystal Barrows, was shot by a deputy and killed during the raid. Investigators have called that shooting accidental.
