LAS ANIMAS, Colo. (AP) - The death of a convicted sex offender who died earlier this month in a Bent County prison has been ruled a suicide.

County Coroner Dave Roberts said Friday that Geoffrey A. Scheid suffocated himself by putting a plastic bag over his head.

Scheid was serving a 16-year sentence from a sex assault in Adams County. He appealed his conviction in 2007, but his sentence was upheld.

Scheid was found dead at the medium-security Bent County Correctional Facility on Nov. 1. He was 58. ..Source..
