CORALVILLE – An Iowa prison inmate took his own life this weekend, an Iowa correctional official said.
Ryan Stephen Bordenaro was pronounced dead at 3:48 p.m. on Saturday, March 18 after he had been found hanging from a bed sheet in his cell at the Iowa Medical and Classification Center.
Staff noticed the apparent suicide at 3:03 pm, and responders arrived within one minute. CPR and AED were immediately administered, but were unsuccessful.
Bordenaro had been serving a sentence for four counts of forgery and other misdemeanors from Polk County. His sentence began on January 3, 2012. He had recently been returned to prison following work release revocation.
