BEND, Ore. (AP) - The autopsy on a Deschutes County Jail inmate who died hours after his arrest showed no obvious physical cause of death.

KTVZ reports (https://bit.ly/1xkXNlC ) officials are awaiting the results of toxicology tests, which take about a month.

The 31-year-old transient, Edwin Burl Mays, was a passenger in a car that tried to flee police.

He was arrested Sunday on charges of interfering with a police officer, menacing, giving false information, heroin possession and a parole violation.

Mays was being booked into the jail in Bend when he showed signs of medical distress. Fire department medics responded but couldn’t save him.
