October 10, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

An illegal immigrant serving five life terms for the strangling deaths of his wife, three young daughters and a neighborhood girl apparently took his own life by hanging himself, authorities said.

Simon Rios, 36, was found in his cell at the Pendleton Correctional Facility northeast of Indianapolis, prison spokesman David Barr said, adding that there were no signs of foul play.

Rios left a note requesting that his remains be returned to his native Mexico, according to his attorney, Michelle Kraus.
