It was terrible that there was overwhelming TV coverage of alleged abuse of this 41 year old mother by police, But hardly any coverage about her self inflicted overdose. I guess unfounded stories take priority of the truth. To make small town look bad. I am glad the Mayor and police Department stuck with following state guidelines that eventually vindicated them.

The situation still goes unseen. Why would they let my aunt pass away and not call nor inform n-e-one. She had children who needed her, let alone them not knowing where she was. I think the state could've done a better job with this.
