The Idaho Department of Correction is investigating the apparent suicide of an inmate at the Idaho State Correctional Center.

ISCC staff found Sergey Bogomaz, IDOC #107885, unconscious in his cell on the afternoon of Sunday, Aug.3, 2014. ISCC staff immediately initiated resuscitation measures. Bogomaz was pronounced dead at 3:03 p.m.

Bogomaz was 32 years old (DOB: Aug. 10, 1981). On Jan. 14, 2014 in Ada County, he was sentenced to one to five years in prison for possession of a controlled substance. He was eligible to be considered for parole on Nov. 16, 2014.

As IDOC does in response to all unattended deaths in the South Boise Correctional Complex, the department has asked the Ada County Sheriff’s Office for assistance with the investigation of the circumstances surrounding  Bogomaz’ death.

ISCC is a 2060-bed men’s prison south of Boise.
