The Idaho Department of Correction is investigating the apparent suicide of an inmate at the Idaho State Correctional Institution.
IDOC officials report that 55-year-old Calvin Dwight was found hanging in his cell Tuesday afternoon. ISCI medical staff attempted to resuscitate Dwight but the inmate was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.
Dwight, a Canyon County resident, was sentenced to three-and-a-half to seven years behind bars for possession of a controlled substance.
The Ada County Sheriff's Office has been called in to assist the investigation into Dwight's death.
