Authorities say they found nothing suspicious in the death of a Utah State Prison inmate who previously won a civil lawsuit after being raped in 2001 by a corrections officer.
Unified Police Detective Levi Hughes told The Associated Press that investigators found no indication why 29-year-old Priscilla Elizabeth Chavez died in her cell Friday. Her body was sent to the state medical examiner.
The woman's family members previously said they believe Chavez was a victim of neglect or retaliation in prison. Her mother says she had medical and mental health problems, was being heavily medicated and had heart trouble just weeks ago.
