Lock Haven, Pa. —Rumors started to circulate in mid-November when a suicide was reported out of Lock Haven involving a high-profile inmate.

Jamie Lynn Jackson, 37, of Lock Haven was incarcerated on charges of homicide after the discovery of her 9-year-old nephew deceased inside her Lock Haven apartment. Friday night’s release that detailed Jackson’s untimely death, gave a multiple-drug overdose as the cause of death.
