October 8, 2020 (Lincoln, Neb.) – Hector Medina-Liborio, 35, died shortly after 7:00 p.m. on October 7, 2020 at the Diagnostic and Evaluation Center (DEC).  His sentence started on July 31, 2013. Medina-Liborio was serving a 35- to 50-year sentence for kidnapping and first degree sexual assault of a child out of Douglas County.

While the cause of death has yet to be determined, Medina-Liborio 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.
