December 24, 2020 (Tecumseh, Neb.) – James Forsberg #46436, age 86, died just before 9:30 a.m. today at the Tecumseh State Correctional Institution (TSCI). His sentence started on January 17, 1995. He was sentenced 50 years to life in prison for second degree murder out of Cedar County.  

While the cause of death has yet to be determined, Forsberg 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, a grand jury will conduct an investigation.
