Oklahoma inmate electrocutes self with CPAP

CLAREMORE, Oklahoma -
An inmate in the Rogers County jail is dead after he electrocuted himself Monday morning.

Sources say 47-year-old Leslie Paul Jones was found dead in his cell. The Chelsea man was charged with several sex crimes including rape and incest.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has been called in.

"We got the call at 5:31 this morning," said OSBI spokesperson Jessica Brown. "It's pretty routine for jails to call OSBI in matters such as this."

According to court records, Jones's trial on charges of rape, rape by instrumentation, lewd or indecent proposals/acts to a child and incest was set to begin Monday.

He was arrested in December 2011.

Jones used a CPAP machine to electrocute himself, sources tell News On 6. CPAP machines are electric air pumps used in the treatment of sleep apnea.

"We're going to wait 'till the ME's office rules it," Brown said. "It will be up to them to decide it (cause of death)."

Seems like going to a lot of trouble when all you need to do is hang yourself with the electrical cord!

How did they know it was a suicide? Was it the suicide note stapled to his back?

It was not suicide. He was playing Russian Roulette with an automatic.

I would like to think that the final report came back as autoerotic asphyxiation...but only cause the coroner was a David Carradine fan.

Before we cheer too much, remember "innocent until proven guilty." Lots of truly innocent folks get charged with such crimes as a means of revenge or as a maneuver in a divorce or custody case.

The system still chews them up and spits them out. Note he was in jail for over a year before getting a trial. What happened to "speedy trial?" (And first class hanging if guilty?)

I'm wondering what he did to electrocute himself? I presume he just took the power cord, cut it and stripped the ends.
