CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Authorities say they don't suspect foul play in the death of a 52-year-old inmate at a Carson City prison.
Nevada Department of Corrections officials say Richard B. Ferst was found dead Saturday in his single-occupancy cell at Northern Nevada Correctional Center. Officials didn't provide a cause of death.
Ferst had been in prison since July 2011 and was serving a three to 20 year sentence for burglary, grand larceny and possession of stolen property.
Ferst came to the prison from Clark County.
