Inmate believed to have committed suicide

Posted: Friday, January 16, 2009

ANCHORAGE - An inmate at the Wildwood Correctional Center in Kenai is believed to have committed suicide.

Fifty-two-year-old Edgar Carle was found Wednesday morning. It appears he used a cord from a cleaning machine to hang himself. Carle had an inmate job at the prison as a night janitor. He was last seen alive around 1:30 a.m.

Richard Schmitz, a spokesman with the Alaska Department of Corrections, says Carle had been in Wildwood for about a year and was awaiting trial on a charge of sexually abusing a minor.

A court hearing in the case was scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.
