Final autopsy results remain pending for an Ellis County inmate who died Aug. 27 at Baylor Medical Center in Waxahachie.
According to a statement released by the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office, Bernardino Moreno, 52, of Dallas had significant medical issues at the time he was placed in custody.
CPR was initiated at the jail before Moreno was transported by ambulance to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead by an Ellis County justice of the peace.
An autopsy was ordered, with a preliminary finding from the Dallas County medical examiner’s office indicating the death was not the result of a suicide.
Moreno was taken into custody March 15 for evading arrest/detention with a vehicle probation revocation and driving while license invalid, according to information released by sheriff’s office.
