Autopsy results may tell how man died after being restrained by family

Citizen Staff Writer



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.

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.
