Jesse Ryan Loskarn, a former aide to Sen. Lamar Alexander who faced charges for child pornography, was found dead in a Sykesville, Md., home Thursday afternoon, a release from the Carroll County Sheriff’s Department said.

The cause of death was suicide by hanging, said Bruce Goldfarb, a spokesman for the Maryland Chief Medical Examiner’s office.

Loskarn was arrested in December and arraigned on federal child pornography charges.

“I am stunned, surprised and disappointed by what I have learned,” Mr. Alexander, Tennessee Republican, said in a statement at the time. “Based on this information, I immediately placed Mr. Loskarn on administrative leave without pay. The office is fully cooperating with the investigation.”
