The Brown County Coroner's Office said Zachary Goldson, 24, was found hanging from a sprinkler head in a holding cell on Oct. 5. The coroner ruled Goldson died of strangulation.
The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is working on the case, the coroner's office said.
Media reports indicate Goldson, a Reading resident, was indicted in September on charges of possession of weapons while under disability with specification, unlawful possession of dangerous ordnance with specification and discharge of firearm on or near prohibited premises with specification.
The Brown County coroner said the death was ruled a suicide because of the way the knot of the rope was tied to the sprinkler. She said that it was not possible that the victim tied the knot himself.
Goldson also had served time for property crime convictions in Hamilton County.
