State prison inmate dies following illness

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – A 45-year-old state prison inmate has died following an illness.

The Department of Corrections announced that Bryan Thompson passed away in the infirmary of the Jameson Annex to the South Dakota State Penitentiary in Sioux Falls on Saturday.

Thompson was serving multiple sentences out of Davison County for possession of child pornography.

He was arrested in 2010 after being accused of distributing multiple images of child pornography to an undercover officer, the Mitchell Republic reports.

Law enforcement later found more than 100 images of child pornography in his possession after a search warrant was executed.
