Authorities say Foster Gordon died Sunday while in the Regional Medical Facility at the center. He died of complications from an undisclosed medical condition and had been housed in the medical facility for an extended period of time.

The 86-year-old had been serving time from Washoe County for sexual assault. He was sentenced to 20 years to Life With the Possibility of Parole. Gordon had been incarcerated with the NDOC on this case since January 2008.

An autopsy will be conducted, and next of kin were notified.
