Los Angeles County is reporting the death of a 48-year-old Latino male that occurred at Men’s Central Jail at 441 Bauchet Street 90012 downtown.

The coroner’s office has identified the man as Abel Garcia.

Height: 5 feet 10 inches. Weight: 250 pounds

Manner of Death: Natural

RIP ABEL JOSE GARCIA (August 3, 1974 – April 26, 2023)

Formal pronouncement of death was made on Wednesday at 6:25 p.m.

Ruling by the deputy medical examiner was published in late September, presumably after the results of tox screening came back negative for substances.

The decedent was the 11th in-custody death of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department for the year.

He had a few arrests in his file. It appears he was serving a sentence from an arrest made by LAPD’s Hollywood Division on June 3, 2022. The sentencing date was March 20, 2023.
