An autopsy shows that a Ventura County jail inmate who became seriously ill died from natural causes.

Department officials say Pamela Bucciarelle became ill early Wednesday morning, while in her cell at the county’s Todd Road jail facility.

The 56 year old woman was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead about three hours later.

Craig Stevens, with the Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office, says the Simi Valley woman died from complications from a ruptured gastric ulcer.
