TUCSON, Ariz. – Authorities say an inmate who escaped from the Pima County jail in Tucson two weeks ago has been found dead in Mexico.

Details about the death of 30-year-old Luis Moreno weren’t immediately released Thursday.

County sheriff’s officials say Moreno escaped through the back dock outside of the jail’s kitchen on Dec. 28.

He was last seen running toward a wash near the detention complex.

Authorities say Moreno had turned himself in to face 30 days in jail for an outstanding DUI warrant the previous day.
