An inmate at Arizona State Prison Complex-Eyman died of an apparent act of self-harm on Monday, according to the Arizona Department of Corrections. 

The department said Tuesday that corrections staff found 31-year-old Jonathan Wilson unresponsive in his cell and conducted life-saving measures until paramedics arrived.

Wilson was declared dead at 9:25 p.m. at the prison complex by a doctor in consultation with the responding paramedics, said Andrew Wilder, a corrections spokesman.

Wilson had been sentenced out of Maricopa County to seven years in prison for trafficking in stolen property, records show.

Wilson’s sentence had a maximum end date of Nov. 3, 2020, according to the department’s website.

Arizona State Prison Complex-Eyman is in Florence, the Pinal County seat. Inmate deaths are investigated in coordination with the county’s medical examiner, the department said.
