JESSUP, Md. (AP) -- A father serving two life sentences for killing his two small children was found dead in a prison shower, apparently the victim of a homicide, authorities said. Richard Spicknall, 34, was found unresponsive in the shower at the Jessup Correctional Institution around 7:40 p.m. Saturday. Attempts to revive him were unsuccessful, and he was pronounced dead a few minutes later, said Department of Correctional Services spokesman Mark Vernarelli. Mr. Vernarelli said Spicknall's death was a homicide. The state's chief medical examiner, Dr. David Fowler, said he could not release the cause of death because the case is being investigated.

Wonder what he tripped on?
tripped on the soap and fell onto a shiv.
Poetic accidents do happen...
Slipped on the tile and simultaneously fell on 50 or 60 fists.
Real justice finally caught up to him.
Shoulda used that soap on a rope!
"Killer found dead..."
Good for him, dirty SOB.
A lot of people in prison are there for drug offenses. Some are there for theft of various types. Most of them don't like sex offenders or people who are bad to children. Many of them probably love their own kids. A guy like him will get no breaks.
Killed in the shower?
Sounds like someone was trying to get out early for good behavior.
Inmate accused of tattooing victim's name onto killer's forehead
COLUMBUS, Ind. (AP) An inmate accused of forcibly tattooing a slain 10-year-old girl's name onto her killer's forehead in an Indiana prison was the victim's cousin, a family friend said.
Jared Harris, 22, is a cousin of Katlyn "Katie" Collman, family friend and spokesman Terry Gray confirmed to The Republic newspaper. He said he did not believe they knew each other well.
Harris, 22, who is serving time on a burglary conviction at Wabash Valley state prison in Carlisle, has been charged with battery and is accused of tattooing "KATIE'S REVENGE" across Anthony Ray Stockelman's forehead.
Harris told prison officials the attack was in revenge, according to an affidavit.
Stockelman is serving a life sentence after pleading guilty to abducting, molesting and killing the fourth-grader, who lived about 70 miles south of Indianapolis. She was missing for five days before her body was found Jan. 30, 2005, in a creek about 15 miles from her home.
The affidavit said that prison officials transferred Harris to the same prison wing as Stockelman on Sept. 19, three days before the attack, and that Harris subsequently threatened Stockelman's life several times.
Harris slipped into the open cell Stockelman shared with another prisoner on Sept. 22 and, when Stockelman returned, Harris closed the locking cell door, according to the affidavit.
Stockelman told investigators that Harris put his right hand around his throat and told him, "I'm either gonna stick you and leave you bleeding or I'm gonna tattoo you." After applying the tattoo using a makeshift tattoo gun, Harris discarded the device in a trash can, he told investigators.
"Dr. David Fowler, said he could not release the cause of death because the case is being investigated."
Injured while picking up the soap no doubt?
