Mohave County Sheriff’s officials say deputies are investigating the death of a jail inmate that was discovered by detention officers at around 8 p.m. Saturday, June 8.

A detention officer found Rylee Adam Campo, 27, of Kingman, who had apparently hung himself in his closed cell. Lifesaving efforts were initiated and the Kingman Fire Department and River Medical responded. He was taken by ambulance to Kingman Regional Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead.

MCSO said Campo was alone in his cell and that the door was closed and secured. The initial investigation shows no reason to suspect foul play. The investigation is ongoing and the medical examiner will complete an autopsy in the coming days.

Campo had been booked into the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility on May 7 on several felony offenses.

This is about the third suicide in approximately 18 months at the jail, with the last occurring Oct. 25, 2018.
