Vermont State Police say Howard Godfrey died Tuesday at the Southern State Correctional Facility in Springfield, Vt.

Godfrey was serving a life-sentencing for murdering Patricia Scoville in 1991.

Police say it appears that Godfrey died of natural causes and there are no signs of foul play, however the investigation is ongoing. 

David and Ann Scoville, parents of Patricia, fought hard for Vermont’s DNA database, which helped solve the case. The murder went unsolved for 17 years.

Godfrey's body was transferred to the Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy.
