MONROE, Wash. – The Department of Corrections says an inmate at the Washington State Reformatory in Monroe committed suicide.
A spokeswoman, Carolyn Sanden, said 25-year-old Nathan William Giorgianni, of Monroe, was found dead Wednesday.
He was hanging from an electrical cord tied to a water pipe in a shop. Police later found a suicide note in Giorgianni’s cell. He worked as an office clerk in the panel shop.
Giorgianni was serving time for first-degree murder in Spokane in 2003.
He pleaded guilty to killing his former girlfriend’s stepmother, Yukiko Evans, who was stabbed repeatedly with an 8-inch kitchen knife.
