WINNIPEG -- Former city cop Richard Dow died in jail from natural causes, an autopsy has concluded.

Dow, 58, was found dead at Headingley Correctional Centre late Tuesday morning.

An autopsy Wednesday ruled out foul play, RCMP confirmed.

Dow pleaded guilty to 11 counts of sexual assault and one simple assault and was sentenced last fall to 16 months in jail. The offences all involved young women who modelled for his defunct talent agency, RiCoCo International.
