Inmate dies at Northern Nevada prison, seventh since October

An 86-year-old inmate serving 20 years to life for sexual assault has died at a Carson City prison.

The Nevada Department of Corrections says Foster Gordon died Sunday in the regional medical facility at Northern Nevada Correctional Center.

Officials say Gordon had been in the prison medical facility for an extended period of time and died of complications from a medical condition.

Gordon was convicted in Washoe County and incarcerated in that case since 2008.

Officials say an autopsy will be conducted.

Gordon is at least the seventh inmate to die at the prison since October.
