A 40-year-old prison inmate at the Idaho State Correctional Institution south of Boise was found dead in his cell Saturday morning, according to a spokesman for the Idaho Department of Correction.

Walter Clarence Prichard was found unresponsive in his cell at 6:04 a.m. The Ada County Sheriff's Office is investigating Prichard's death as an apparent suicide.

Correction spokesman Jeff Ray said Prichard had attached something to his bed and his neck, leaned forward and apparently hung himself. He was the only person in his cell.

Prichard was serving 15 years to life in prison for lewd and lascivious conduct with a minor under 16 years old. He was sentenced in Ada County on July 1, 2004. He was eligible to be considered for parole in 2019.
