Gabriela Contreras, 31, was found dead around 11:30 p.m. Sunday, according to the Goodyear Police Department. The department is not investigating her death as a homicide.
Contreras gained notoriety after she downloaded and leaked videos of attacks related to broken locks at Lewis Prison. Contreras said she raised her concerns to superiors about the broken locks and low staffing levels, but said her concerns were largely ignored.
She then decided to share the videos with ABC15.

Arizona Department of Corrections Director David Shinn issued a written statement offering his condolences to Conteras' family.

"On behalf of the men and women of the Arizona Department of Corrections, Rehabilitation and Reentry, I would like to express our deepest condolences to the family of Correctional Officer III Ana Gabriela Contreras, who passed away early this morning," Shinn said. "This is a sad day for us all, and tragic loss as she was a valued member of our team."
