Debra Kranz of Kranz Funeral Home in Cass City, Michigan, said Thursday that Nichols died Tuesday in a Saginaw hospital.
The Flint Journal reported he suffered from cancer.
Agents raided James Nichols’ farm in Decker two days after the April 1995 bombing that killed 168 people after his brother and Timothy McVeigh were identified as suspects. James Nichols was arrested and held 32 days, then released for lack of evidence.
