Authorities investigating death of inmate at Torrington prison

TORRINGTON, Wyo. (AP) – Authorities say a 24-year-old Wyoming inmate died of an apparent suicide.

The Wyoming Department of Corrections says John Manuel Garcia, an inmate at a medium correctional facility in Torrington, died after paramedics took him to a hospital early Wednesday. Investigators have not said how he killed himself.

Garcia was sentenced in Carbon County on Sept. 24 to three to five years in prison for property destruction, a felony.

An autopsy is planned.
