Man sentenced to life on Pimp Charges mysteriously dies in Nevada Prison.

LAS VEGAS – A Nevada prison inmate serving life without parole for kidnapping and sex trafficking in Las Vegas has died in custody.

A state Corrections Department official said Wednesday that 31-year-old Robert Sharpe III died Saturday at a Las Vegas hospital, two days after he was found unresponsive in his cell at High Desert State Prison.

The Clark County coroner didn’t immediately rule on a cause of death.

Prisons spokeswoman Brooke Keast says there’s no indication of foul play.

A jury found Sharpe guilty last year of abducting a teenage girl and forcing her into prostitution with threats to harm her family and what a judge called torment and slavery.

Sharpe was arrested in September 2014 after the girl was left near a hospital with broken bones, bruises and wounds on her body.
