Inmate who died at detention center identified as 65-year-old Las Vegan

The Clark County Detention Center inmate who died in custody Tuesday has been identified as 65-year-old Las Vegas resident Jorge Ponce.

Las Vegas police said Ponce was booked June 22 at the detention center on multiple felony charges.

Because he had a pre-existing medical condition, he was housed in the facility’s medical ward.

Early Monday, Ponce passed out in a jail restroom. Detention center personnel began rendering aid.

He was taken to University Medical Center, where he died Tuesday morning.

The Clark County coroner’s office has not released the manner and cause of his death.
