Tecumseh Prison Inmate Dies

The Nebraska Dept of Correctional Services says an inmate died at the state prison in Tecumseh on Sunday.

No cause of death has been given for 47-year old Todd Shade, but prison officials say he was being treated for a long-term medical condition.

      Shade had served 25 years of a 100-year sentence for 1st degree sexual assault of a child.

      Although foul play is not suspected in Shade’s death, a grand jury will be convened to investigate under a state law that requires a grand jury anytime someone dies in state custody or in the process of being arrested.
