Troy Driver found dead in cell of apparent suicide

Troy Driver found dead in cell of apparent suicide

Troy Driver, the man charged with kidnapping and murdering Naomi Irion, was found dead in his jail cell in an apparent suicide Sunday evening, Lyon County Sheriff Brad Pope said in a statement.

According to Pope’s statement, deputies in the Lyon County jail conducting routine hourly cell checks and inmate cell counts found Driver unresponsive alone in his cell at 6:17 p.m. Sunday. Pope said they immediately entered the cell and started lifesaving measures, including CPR. The on-duty Jail Control Room Officer requested an ambulance, which was dispatched to the jail.

While deputies performed CPR, medical personnel with the Yerington/Mason Valley Fire Department arrived and took over lifesaving attempts. After several rounds of CPR with no effect, fire department medical personnel contacted an emergency room doctor through regional medical control who was advised of the lifesaving attempt and advised medical personnel on scene to terminate CPR and pronounce the inmate deceased.

Pope said preliminary details thus far indicate that Driver committed suicide by asphyxiation.

Driver was in custody on murder charges and awaiting trial for the kidnapping and murder of Naomi Irion. He was housed in a maximum security jail cell and had no contact with other inmates. Sources said Driver attempted suicide last year by trying to hang himself, but at that time, then-Sheriff Frank Hunewill declined to confirm or deny those reports.

Per Lyon County Sheriff’s Office policy, an outside agency is required to conduct in-custody death investigations. The Nevada State Police Division of Investigations was requested to respond to the Lyon County jail to investigate the events leading to Driver’s death.
