Two inmates who recently died inside the El Paso County Jail have been identified.

On March 17, Laura Gibbs, 41, was found unresponsive inside her cell; and on March 25, Leroy Eckhoff, 74, was found unresponsive in his cell, the sheriff’s office said in separate news releases. Emergency responders and sheriff’s staff performed medical measures on site where Gibbs and Eckhoff were pronounced dead.

The sheriff’s office extended “deepest sympathies” to Gibbs’ and Eckhoff’s family and friends.

The El Paso County Coroner will conduct full autopsies to “make an official determination as to the cause of death” in both ongoing investigations, the releases said.
