DOYLESTOWN BOROUGH — A Polish immigrant serving a sentence in the Bucks County Correctional Facility for an August 1993 shooting and kidnapping at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa in New Britain Township was found hanged in his cell Friday morning, authorities said.
Thomas J. Rosko, Bucks County coroner, ruled the death of Ryszard Mazur, 31, a suicide. He said Mazur had used his shoelaces to fashion a noose. Mazur was found by guards shortly after 7 a.m., after he did not report for breakfast, Rosko said. Mazur was last seen alive at an 11 p.m. lockdown.
