27-year-old dead after inhaling air duster

JONESBORO, Ark. – A mother went to her daughter’s home Wednesday afternoon after she couldn’t get her to answer the phone. She feared the worst. When she arrived, all of those fears were realized. Her 27-year-old daughter was dead.

At about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jonesboro Fire Department and Emerson were already on the scene at 4315 Prospect Road when JPD arrived. The mother of the woman spoke to Detective Keri Varner, although she was too distraught to provide much information. Varner could only ascertain the mother had located the deceased, Lereida Estrada Ramos, 27, of Jonesboro.

She had been using air duster since she was a teenager, the report said.

The body was located by detectives in the south bedroom, in the doorway. Her head was pointing north, her lips were purple and her body was cold to the touch. Rigor mortis had not yet set in.

Three cans of Endust air duster were found laying on her bed. One can was empty, one was half empty and the other was still full. Her cell phone lay on the bed next to the apparent instruments of her accidental death.

After speaking with the deceased’s sister, Varner confirmed she had been using air duster since she was a teenager. There was no history of depression or medical conditions which may have otherwise caused the death.

The body was turned over to the coroner to be sent to the State Crime Lab for autopsy.
