Video doesn't show fight before inmate's death

PHOENIX (AP) - Surveillance video from an Arizona jail where an inmate died earlier this month doesn't show the inmate getting into any fights or disputes with jail officers or other inmates.

Still, the inmate's family claims that bruises and cuts on his body show that he was physically harmed while incarcerated.

The video shows 40-year-old Raymond Manuel Farinas arriving in jail, resting in a holding cell, getting fingerprinted, being frisked by a jail officer and brought to the cell where he was eventually discovered to be unresponsive on June 3.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office has said there was no physical contact between Farinas and jail officers or other inmates.

Joy Bertrand, an attorney representing the Farinas family, says the family hasn't been given a consistent explanation of his death.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
