Feds: ICE detainee dies at Eloy Detention Center

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Federal authorities say a Guatemalan woman in custody at the Eloy Detention Center has died from an apparent suicide.
 
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials announced Tuesday that 24-year-old Elsa Guadalupe-Gonzales was found hanging in her cell Sunday evening by another detainee.
 
They say detention facility staff called 911 and emergency medical technicians responded to the scene, but were unable to revive her.
 
Authorities say Guadalupe-Gonzales was arrested for allegedly being in the country illegally. She had been detained since March 20 as she awaited immigration hearings.
 
They say she was taken into custody March 18 by U.S. Border Patrol near Nogales, Ariz.
 
While at the detention center, ICE officials say Guadalupe-Gonzales received two routine medical screenings, but didn't seek any medical or mental health treatment.
