Autopsy Planned For Female Inmate Found Dead In A Ventura County Jail Facility

Posted on Monday, August 6, 2012 12:44am

An autopsy is planned to try to determine the cause of death of a female inmate found dead in a Ventura County Jail facility.

Deputies doing bed checks late Saturday night noticed that a woman in the Pre-Trial Detention facility in Ventura appeared not to be breathing. They started emergency aid, and called paramedics, but the 53 year old woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

Jail officials say the death appears to be from natural causes, with no signs of suspicious circumstances, but they’re waiting for autopsy results before making a final determination as to what happened.
