Family of Dead Jail Inmate Calls for Investigation


The family of Alonzo Travis, who died at the Sangamon County Jail this week, is seeking an autopsy and calling for a thorough investigation.

 

The SJ-R reports the family is also looking into hiring an attorney.

 

Sangamon County Coroner Cinda Edwards says that there were no signs of injury and it appears Travis died of natural causes, but was still waiting on test results and has not made an official ruling.

 

Travis had been at the county jail since early July after being booked on misdemeanor charges of battery and criminal trespass.

 

He was also charged with several different counts of aggravated battery after altercations with jail guards.
