According to the Travis County Sheriff's Office, both inmates were found unresponsive in their individual jail cells. Investigations into their deaths indicate they both likely died of natural causes.
The final determination is pending for toxicology reports and other test results.

At 5 p.m. on the same day, 24-year-old Eric Taylor was observed to be lying on the floor of his cell.
