Christopher S. Tew, 21, died from asphyxiation due to hanging, county officials said. His death has been classified as a suicide.
Tew was among five people arrested last week in connection with more than 15 burglaries in Hamilton Township. Tew and two other men were also charged with the armed robbery of Manze's Insurance Company which took place Dec. 14, police said.
