RICHWOOD, La. (KNOE 8 News) - An inmate at the Richwood Correctional Center has died.

Lasalle Corrections in Ruston owns the facility. They say they are awaiting preliminary reports but believe the cause of death is natural.

Warden Ray Hanson says a review of security video shows all proper protocol was followed and the staff quickly responded to the emergency.

Hanson also says the coroner's office will review the incident.

Ouachita Parish Sheriff Jay Russell says his office has not been contacted by the coroner's office and they wouldn't receive a call if the inmate died of natural causes.

However, Russell says they will look into the matter and give more information as it comes available.
