Nice day. Here is an open line. I’ll just say I wish my dad, the LSU grad, was sitting with me right now.

UPDATE: News of another state prison suicide.


An inmate at the Varner Supermax is dead after apparently committing suicide. Nathan D. Bible was found by correctional staff at 6:00p.m. yesterday evening. He apparently had removed the plastic binding from his mattress seams and used it to hang himself from the bars. Life-saving efforts by medical staff at the unit proved futile, and Bible was pronounced dead at 6:20 p.m. by the attending physician.

The Arkansas State Police is investigating Bible’s death, and the state medical examiner’s office will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of death. Bible, 30, was serving a 33-year sentence for three aggravated robbery convictions and one drug-related conviction. He was sentenced May 12,  2010, in Sebastian county.
