A man arrested for outstanding medical bills was found dead in a jail cell shortly after being taken into custody.

Rex Iverson racked up a $2,376.92 bill from an ambulance ride in 2013. He never paid the bill and ignored repeated court orders to do so, according to the Standard Examiner. The delinquency led to a warrant being issued for his arrest.

Iverson, 45, was arrested Jan. 23 and taken to a Box Elder County Jail cell in Brigham City, Utah. He died within hours alone in a cell there, according to the Box County Sheriff’s Office.

There is no indication of foul play, according to officials. An investigation by the Sheriff’s Office and outside agencies are ongoing.

Neighbors and friends described Iverson as a giving, wonderful guy, according to the Standard Examiner.

“Rex would give from his heart,” Chrissy Sabala told the Standard Examiner. “But he never expected a thing.”
