June 16, 2023 (Lincoln, Neb.) –  David Saxton #82585, age 54, died this morning at the Reception and Treatment Center (RTC), where he was incarcerated.

Saxton’s sentence began on July 27, 2015. He was serving a 30 years to life sentence for second degree murder out of Lincoln County.

While the cause of death has not yet been determined, Saxton was being treated for a medical condition. As is the case whenever an inmate dies in the custody of the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services (NDCS), a grand jury will conduct an investigation.
