Fifty-three-year-old Daniel Clement, jailed last week on six counts of child porn possession, has died in custody. The incident is under investigation but authorities say the death appears to be due to natural causes.
Clement was arrested last Wednesday near 47th and Hamilton. On Friday, Clement went before a judge who set his bond at $25,000.
Investigators say Clement was in possession of several sexually explicit photos and video of children. The children depicted in the pictures ranged in age from three to 12.
Douglas County officials say that Clement was found unresponsive in his cell at 3:30 Monday morning. CPR was performed and medical staff responded while 911 was alerted.
Omaha Fire and Rescue responded and Clement was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office has initiated an investigation as required by state law for an in-custody death.
