A former leader of the American Nationalist Party, a neo-Nazi group, hanged himself in a Boise, Ida., jail cell, one day after returning from Seattle where he had spent 10 days testifying before a federal grand jury about the Aryan Nations Church and a neo-Nazi splinter group called The Order, authorities said. Members of both groups are suspects in several armored car and bank robberies. Eugene T. Kinerk, 22, was found hanging from a vent by a torn bed sheet, U.S. Marshal Blaine Skinner said.
