PHOENIX — A convicted serial killer who committed suicide in an Arizona prison last year was hoarding antidepressants from a fellow inmate in the months before his death, according to a state prison investigation.

An Arizona Department of Corrections report released this week says the inmate gave 40-year-old Dale Hausner four to five amitriptyline pills a week over a two-month period at a Florence prison.

According to documents, the unidentified inmate told the Inspector General's Office that Hausner said he was having trouble sleeping.

The inmate says he thought Hausner was taking the pills as he received them.

Hausner was convicted of killing six people and attacking 19 others in a series of random shootings in metropolitan Phoenix in 2005 and 2006.

In June 2013, he was found unresponsive in his cell.
