Dept. of Corrections Inmate Suffers Fatal Medical Event at County Jail

On the morning of January 4, a 48-year-old male inmate, Gregory Levingston, was found unresponsive and not breathing in his jail cell.

Detention personnel attempted emergency life-saving measures until an ambulance crew arrived at the jail. The inmate was transported to a local emergency room, but never regained consciousness. At 8:30 a.m., he was pronounced dead at the hospital. The inmate was received at the Pinal County Adult Detention Center on December 30 and cleared by county medical staff.

He was transferred from DoC to Pinal County for a court hearing.

He was alone in his cell and discovered unresponsive when he did not exit the cell for his daily medications at 7:20 a.m. He suffered from diabetes and his death appears to be medically related. The County Medical Examiner will review the death and make final determination on cause of death at a later date.
