The Nevada Department of Corrections says an inmate has died at the William Bee Ririe Hospital in Ely.

Authorities say they found Paul Skinner unresponsive in his cell at the Ely State Prison on Tuesday. Life-saving efforts were performed, but he later died at the hospital.

The 53-year-old was serving time from Washoe County for sexual assault, attempted sexual assault and robbery. Skinner had been incarcerated with the NDOC since June 9, 1997.

The White Pine County Sheriff's Office responded to the prison and an autopsy will be conducted, and next of kin were notified.
