Pima County Sheriff’s Department detectives are waiting for autopsy results to learn how a man died while being restrained by his father and brother, a department spokeswoman said.
Arthur Huerta Nabor, 30, was found dead Saturday at his family’s home in the 5700 block of South Bryant Stravenue, near East Drexel Road and South Alvernon Way, Deputy Dawn Barkman said.
Barkman said deputies were called to the home about 3 a.m. regarding a domestic disturbance at the home Nabor shared with his father, mother and brother. She would not name any of the other family members.
When deputies arrived they found Nabor dead, and detectives were called in to continue the investigation, Barkman said.
Family members said Nabor had become violent. “He was throwing things and hitting people,” Barkman said.
While his father and brother tried to restrain Nabor on the family sofa, he became unresponsive, Barkman said.
Deputies are investigating the possibility drugs were a factor, and toxicology tests will be done as part of an autopsy. Such tests typically take six to eight weeks to complete.
Barkman said no arrests were made.
