TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — An inmate at the Pima County Adult Detention Complex died over the weekend.

According to a statement released on Wednesday, the person was found hanging in his cell on June 4.

Officers and firefighters performed life-saving measures on the man, resulting in him being resuscitated and transported to a local hospital, but he died two days later after his condition had deteriorated, PCSD said.

Dixon was originally booked into jail on June 1, 2021.

The Criminal Investigations Division has taken over the investigation and more information will be released at a later date, PCSD said.
