Coroner: Jail Inmate Death Appears to be Natural Causes


The death of a Sangamon County Jail inmate this week appears to have been because of a medical condition, not because of injury or trauma.

 

54-year-old Alonzo Travis died Monday after being found unresponsive in his cell.

 

Coroner Cinda Edwards says the death appears to be from natural causes, but is awaiting test results before making a final determination.

 

The State Journal-Register reports Travis had earlier altercations with jail staff last summer, but there’s no indication that was a factor in his death.
