Richwood Correction Center Inmate dies

Posted: Updated:

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

The Ouachita Parish Coroner's Office said it's waiting on preliminary test results to find out how 34-year-old Derrick Williams died. 

Lasalle Corrections of Ruston owns the facility and Warden Ray Hanson said he thinks Williams died from natural causes.

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

Ouachita Parish Sheriff Jay Russell said his office hasn't been contacted by the coroner's office and it's not typical that they're notified if the inmate dies of natural causes.
