An autopsy revealed two baggies of methamphetamine inside him, one of which had ruptured, the grand jury said. It found no criminal wrongdoing on behalf of anyone else. 

Nguyen was serving a seven-year sentence at the Lincoln Correctional Center on charges from Lancaster County that included leaving the scene of an accident, operating a motor vehicle to avoid arrest and possession of methamphetamine. He was on a 48-hour furlough at an immediate family member's home and had been set to return to prison March 9.

His sentence began in September 2017.
