30-year-old inmate dies at Omaha hospital

Take a closer look at Nebraska's highest prison populations in 2019 (by % operational capacity).

A 30-year-old who was incarcerated at the Omaha Correctional Center died Friday at an Omaha hospital.

The cause of death for Cody Wilbourn has not yet been determined, according to a press release issued Saturday night by the Nebraska Department of Corrections.

Wilbourn had been serving a sentence of 7½ years to 18 years since April 15, 2013. He was convicted of multiple charges, including burglary, assault on an officer, assault by a confined person, evidence tampering and operating a motor vehicle to avoid arrest. The charges originated out of Dawson, Lancaster and Johnson Counties.

A grand jury will conduct an investigation of the death, as is required anytime an inmate dies in custody.
