The Ada County Sheriff's Office has been called in to help investigate the death of an inmate who was found hanging in his cell May 11 at the Idaho State Correctional Institution.
The Idaho Department of Correction reports that 34-year-old Brandon Munk was discovered in his cell the evening of May 11. He was rushed to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center the afternoon of May 12.
Munk, from Bannock County, was sentenced to two to five years in prison for forgery in 2009 but his sentence was suspended and he was released on probation. Law enforcement said Munk violated the terms of his probation and in January 2010 was sent to prison to serve out his term. He was scheduled to be released in July 2014.
