    Ryan Loskarn, 35, the former chief of staff to Republican Senator Lamar Alexander who was charged last month for possessing and distributing child pornography was found dead in his home yesterday. The police believe that Loskarn committed suicide at his home in Maryland. Loskarn was fired the same day his house was raided by federal agents. “For everyone involved, this is a sad and tragic story from beginning to end,” Senator Lamar Alexander said Friday.
