The Idaho Department of Correction says Danny Cordova died Saturday morning at the Idaho Maximum Security Institution in Kuna.

Officials say a correctional officer found Cordova unresponsive in his cell just after 5 a.m. and prison staff initiated life-saving measures.

But Ada County paramedics pronounced Cordova dead just before 6 a.m.

The Ada County Sheriff's Office is investigating, and the Ada County Coroner's Office will attempt to determine a cause of death.

Cordova was serving a sentence for lewd and lascivious conduct with a minor under 16. He was scheduled to be released in April 2024.
