At 3:13 p.m. yesterday, correctional officers found Danny Ollis "hanging in a locked single-man cell where he was alone," according to an Arkansas Department of Correction press release.

He was not pronounced dead until 3:50 p.m. after receiving onsite medical treatment.

Ollis, 44, was at the East Arkansas Unit (commonly called "Brickeys") on a sentence of "Theft of Property" and "Residential Burglary" as a habitual offender — he'd first been sentenced in 1992 for similar crimes. He would've been up for parole in 2028.

The ADC said it was an apparent suicide — similar to an inmate death from this January, at the Varner Unit, when Gregg Smith was found hanging from a homemade noose in the single-man cell.

Arkansas State Police and ADC will conduct separate investigations into his death.
