A recent inmate fell ill at the Men's Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles and was taken to County-USC Medical Center where he died. An autopsy is pending, according to the LA Times.

28-year-old Sarin Nhem of Long Beach was arrested last week for "undisclosed reasons and transferred to the jail on Thursday," where he became ill, said officials.
