(Connersville, IN)--One Fountain City man and one Connersville man were both found dead inside the Fayette County Jail, and officials suspect it was the result of drugs being smuggled in.  37-year-old Chad Sizemore of Fountain City was jailed on a probation violation on Monday night.  He was placed into the same cell as Thomas Lohr and Weslee Jenkins.  Shortly afterward, jail staff found all three men unresponsive.  Sizemore and Lohr were pronounced dead.  Jenkins was taken to Reid Health and is expected to survive.  Toxicology results will likely take several weeks.
