According to Fox News Latino, the immigrant — a Honduran named Pablo Ortiz-Matamoros, 25 — died Feb. 8 due to lymphoma and related complications. ICE has released a statement regarding his death, saying, “Consistent with ICE protocol, the appropriate state health and local law enforcement agencies have also been informed, along with consular officials from Honduras.” The question — and controversy — now remains: was this a sudden-onset disease due to his capture & imprisonment, or was he not getting proper treatment before?
