Authorities say a Wyoming prison inmate has died in an apparent suicide. The state corrections department said 21-year-old John
Christian Tygart, died Thursday at the Wyoming Medium Correctional Institution in Torrington.
At the time of his death, Tygart was serving a two to four year
sentence after being convicted of child abuse in Laramie County on Sept. 24.
He was born in Scottsbluff, Nebraska. The department says an autopsy has been ordered as required by its policy.
