May 22, 2021 (Lincoln, Neb.) – Michael Kirchhoff #82788, age 58, died today at a Lincoln hospital. He was incarcerated at the Nebraska State Penitentiary (NSP).

Kirchhoff’s sentence stared on September 18, 2015. He was serving a 10- to 12-year sentence for possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) out of Lancaster County.

The cause of death has yet to be determined. As is the case whenever an inmate dies in the custody of the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services, a grand jury will conduct an investigation.
