The Kansas Department of Corrections says Cody James Torbol, 29, died Tuesday.  He was discovered by staff unresponsive in his cell.  They began life-saving measures while waiting for EMS to arrive.

Torbol was pronounced dead by medical staff.  Officials said that an independent autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.  The KBI and KDOC will investigate the death, which is standard procedure for any inmate who dies in custody.

Torbol had served eight years of a seventeen year sentence after he was convicted of aggravated criminal sodomy of a child in Riley County in 2017.
