Mohave County jail inmate died from ulcer, examiner finds

KINGMAN, Ariz. — The weekend death of a Mohave County jail inmate was blamed on complications from a gastric ulcer, according to a preliminary finding by a medical examiner.

The final cause of death for Gilberto Alvarado Avila Jr. will be determined once a toxicology analysis is complete, Mohave County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Trish Carter said.

Avila had been in the Kingman jail’s medical unit because of possible health issues. He was found unconscious Saturday morning and died after cardiopulmonary resuscitation efforts failed, Carter said.

The 25-year-old Bullhead City man was being held on domestic violence, disorderly conduct and criminal damage charges.
