Guadulpe Dominguez Leyva, 45, died May 11, 2011 after being transported to MCH the day before for an unknown medical problem.

An autopsy conducted May 12 of that year confirmed Leyva’s death was the result of complications of megacolon.

Families of both Leyva and Carrasco have filed suit against the Ector County Sheriff’s department in the wake of their loved ones’ deaths.

A lawsuit filed by Leyva’s family stated her daughter contacted the Ector County Detention Center about 20 times to complain about her mother’s health.

Both lawsuits are currently pending.
