Authorities say the death of an inmate at the High Desert State Prison last week was a suicide.
 
Officials in the southern Nevada prison say 67-year-old Truman Ray Walker was found dead in his cell at the Indian Springs facility on Friday. He died of hanging.
 
Walker was incarcerated in 1985 after being convicted of sexual assault with substantial bodily harm in Elko County and sentenced to life with the possibility of parole.
 
After he was paroled in 1999, he was incarcerated again in 2000 after pleading guilty to a charge of open and gross lewdness.
 
Walker is the sixth Nevada prisoner to die in less than two months.
