  1. yea crap she was transmitted to dennery via a ambulance for treatment when she was already dead at the bcf does that make sense

  2. There is nothing to cover up, if the inmate died in the cell, the investigation should prove that, there was an officer and duty and also the medical personnel (fire officers) would say if she had a pulse on arrival. Management doesn’t even know what happened, only the officers on the ground so they themselves cannot even answer. People die all the time. I am sure the woman’s death was not the fault of anyone at the prison. Let there be transparency.

  3. Lies you all kill her , she never a violent person. God will take care of the person who did to her. Her two beautiful daughter’s tears will fall in that person. I was very close to her she is spiritual person.. we are really living in the last days.

  4. If you are her friend Mille speak the truth. Didn’t this girl beat her mother up and dragged her on the road like a dog? Isn’t that one of the reasons the police was called. Also please let the st Lucian public know that this girl was mentally ill. Tell me why is there a video circulating on whatsapp with this same girl wearing a black gown carrying a large bundle of wood in the middle of the road refusing to give vehicles room to pass? O you thought some of us did not know. Nobody will pay for Jack shit. The young lady died of natural causes

  5. Death has no shame,if we live with our Maker,on ressurrection day,we will rise with him/Jesus, for he holds the power of death, for the dead in Christ will rise first and death will be more.

  6. Vissyez!!! Never a violent person? When the girl was dragging her mother in the road! The girl was suffering from mental illness.The girl could have died from natural causes.Before u point fingers wait for the autopsy results!

  7. very true… those who deny the power of Jesus may he find you in your darkest hour and convert your soul to his truth that we may meet in the resurrection… not fear the world and its offerings and it evils for the living God is your God and your life is sure with him

  8. Hi Sam, respectfully, please explain what behavior she exhibited in Florida that indicated mental illness.
