Authorities investigate Oklahoma inmate's death

— McALESTER — Authorities are investigating after an Oklahoma man charged in his parents' death was found dead in his jail cell.

Ross Holloway, 32, of Boley was found dead in his Okfuskee County jail cell early Friday morning, according to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.

"There were no signs of foul play and he was alone in his jail cell," OSBI spokeswoman Jessica Brown said.

Still, the bureau has not issued a ruling on Holloway's cause of death, the McAlester News-Capital reported Saturday.

Holloway was charged last week in the death of his parents, Denver and Martha Holloway.

His parents' bodies were found March 11 by OSBI agents and Okfuskee County officials, according to a court affidavit filed in Ross Holloway's murder charges.

A day after Denver and Martha Holloway's deaths, officers in LeFlore County stopped Ross Holloway, who allegedly admitted to smoking methamphetamine hours earlier, according to the affidavit.

Authorities found a .22- caliber revolver inside Ross Holloway's vehicle, along with five spent shell casings inside the cylinder, according to the OSBI.

Denver and Martha Holloway died from multiple gunshot wounds, according to medical examiner's report.
