PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota prisons agency says an inmate has died of an apparent suicide.

The Department of Corrections on Friday said 33-year-old Heidi VandenBosch was found unresponsive in her cell at the South Dakota Women’s Prison in Pierre on Wednesday. She was transported to a local hospital and later airlifted to a Sioux Falls hospital.

VandenBosch was serving a seven-year sentence for a first-degree burglary out of Minnehaha County.

The agency says VandenBosch was a registered organ donor and her family is making the arrangements to fulfill her wish.

The agency says her death is under investigation and an autopsy is planned.
