EL PASO, TEXAS – On November 27, 2023, Detention Officers assigned to the El Paso County Jail Annex found an inmate inside his cell who was unresponsive. Medical staff immediately responded in an attempt to provide medical aid. However, it was determined that the inmate was deceased. The El Paso County Sheriff's Office Major Crime Unit and Texas Rangers were requested and began an investigation. During the investigation, it was discovered that the inmate had been assaulted and that his death was a result of a homicide. The deceased inmate was identified as Jesus Torres, 57 years of age. Detectives identified six inmates assigned to the same cellblock who are responsible for causing the death of Torres. Warrants were obtained for these six inmates, and they have been subsequently rebooked on the added charges. Jail administrators from both the Downtown Facility and the Jail Annex are currently working on separating inmates (to include placing certain inmates in individual "lock-down" cells) in anticipation of potential retaliation over this homicide.
