Louis Burks died at 4:22 p.m., according to a release from the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services.
His sentence began Dec. 20, 2013. He was serving a 20- to 30-year sentence for two counts of attempted sexual assault of a child out of Douglas County.
While the cause of death has not been determined, Burks was being treated for a medical condition. As is the case whenever an inmate dies in custody in Nebraska, a grand jury will conduct an investigation.
