ASAN DIEGO—A 38-year-old Ramona man who was in a San Diego jail facing child molestation charges was found dead May 5 in his bunk.
Deputies found Majid Arif Almajid unresponsive in his bunk at the George Bailey Detention Facility around 11:15 a.m. Sunday, according to San Diego County sheriff’s officials.
Deputies and jail medical staff attempted to revive Mr. Almajid, as did CAL FIRE paramedics, officials said.
Mr. Almajid was arrested Dec. 20 by the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force for “several counts” of molestation on a child 10 years or younger. He was booked into the San Diego Central Jail and transferred six days later to the George Bailey Detention Facility.
The San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office will determine the cause and manner of Mr. Almajid’s death. The Sheriff’s Homicide Unit was investigating.
