The Pima County Medical Examiner's Office has ruled the death of serial killer Dale Hausner a suicide.
After a complete autopsy and a review of toxicology results, the medical examiner determined Dale S. Hausner, 40, took his life by overdosing on amitriptyline, a type of anti-depressant medication.
The Arizona death row inmate was found dead in his prison cell at the Eyman state prison in Florence just after 12 p.m. June 19, the Arizona Department of Corrections said.
On March 13, 2009, Dale Hausner was convicted of 80 crimes, including six counts of first-degree murder, attempted murder, aggravated assault, cruelty to animals and other charges.
The series of crimes occurred in the Phoenix area in 2005 and 2006. He was sentenced to death in Maricopa County.
Hausner came to ADC custody on March 30, 2009.
