Inmate, 52, found dead in Carson cell


Authorities say they don’t suspect foul play in the death of a 52-year-old inmate at Northern Nevada Correctional Center in Carson City.

Nevada Department of Corrections officials say Richard B. Ferst was found dead Saturday in his single-occupancy cell. 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.
