At least 121 people have died while in ICE Custody from October 2003 - April 29, 2011. Eleven men have died while in custody in Florence or Eloy detention centers.
A full list and report is available from ICE here:
One man who hung himself with a towel in the Pinal County Jail in Florence is listed on the report as death by "asphyxia." Several others seem to have died of heart attacks and stokes, which most certainly could have been brought on by stress.
