A High Desert State Prison inmate died Tuesday in Las Vegas.

Thomas was committed from Clark County on June 16, 2014, and was serving 22 to 96 months for burglary. The Clark County coroner responded and an autopsy is being scheduled, Keast said.

Officers were unable to contact next of kin and are asking the public for help, she said. Anyone who knows a member of Thomas’ family can call the Corrections Department at 775-887-3309.
