KINGMAN — An apparent suicide is under investigation at the Mohave County Adult Detention Center in downtown Kingman.

Inmate Rylee Adam Campo, 27, of Kingman, was discovered in his cell about 8 p.m. Saturday.

“A detention officer found an inmate in his closed cell that had apparently hung himself,” a news release from the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office stated. “Detention officers and medical staff initiated life-saving efforts.”

Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Anita Mortensen said Campo was rushed to Kingman Regional Medical Center, where he later was pronounced dead. 

“The initial investigation shows no reason to suspect foul play,” Mortensen said.

The incident remains under investigation and an autopsy will be conducted to determine an official cause of death.

Campo was booked into jail on May 7 for multiple charges, including suspicion of burglary, theft and drug charges.
