An Iowa man convicted in a highly publicized 1999 hostage situation has died by suicide while serving out his sentence at the Anamosa State Penitentiary, officials said.

Wayne Eugene Sinclair, 52, was pronounced dead Saturday morning after what the Department of Corrections called an apparent suicide, according to a DOC news release. Officials are waiting on autopsy results from the State Medical Examiner to confirm Sinclair's cause of death.
