Just waiting for all of the knucklehead police haters to start blaming the McK Police for this. Idiots will still be drumming up conspiracies in a year or so about this

Remember something.... If she wassn't arrested or drunk - she'd likely be alive today. Cause and effect. It's simple. Her actions resulted in her death.

52 yrs old still partying it up ?

Dnt matter wt age she is! Dats sumones mother,daughhter, sibling or sister. The police over there have a reputation for beating the shit out of people in the cell and saying the ppl assaulted the officer. This is going be hard 2 sweep under the rug wait til the autopsy is revealed. PLEASE PEOPLE OF MCKEESPORT STAND UP!!! Might b there sergeants they get away with this year 2 year. What's the punishment 4 public drunkiness? DEATH!?!?!?!?!?

My point is.. If she wasn't in the cell for doing something wrong- she would likely be alive right?

Why is "sumones" mother,daughter,sibling or sister out being a drunk at 52 yrs of age? Also, sister/sibling could very well be the same thing.

What is sumones????????

Mr.perfect im glad u live in this wonderful city of mckeesport were nothing ever happens to u. Last time i checked 21 is the legal limit to deal with alcohol. What's your female relatives age limit to drink? Anywhere they choose? No other charges was she operating a vehicle? Or was she walking somewhere?
If she was publicly intoxicated don't they have cameras to keep an eye on her?! She died what 20 minutes in the cell.
So Mr perfect she was wrong for having a few drinks. Did she deserves to lose her life? Even if its someones' sister,sister-in-law, mother,mother-in-law,or sibling. In this situation Grandmother will fit the description.
Mr.perfect i feel sorry if your grandmother gets drunk or smokes cigarettes or does anything a 52 yr.(stills young) lady shouldn't be doing since she is such a bad person.

Let he/she who has never gone through their drunk and incarcerated at 50(+) throw the first time. It is just a phase, people. We all go through it at mid century...ponder on that tidbit before you judge.

This is a sad and tragic ending for a sad and tragic figure.
I think there is a protocol for observing suicidal guests in the city lock-up, but this woman was no stranger to drunk tanks / holding cells and I don't think the cops would have had any reason to believe that her last stint in the city lock-up would have ended any differently than prior stints.
Unfortunately, by the time they did their walk-through she had already taken her own life.

Never been there, no. Hole in the wall? What should it be?

But what / who do you think should be punished? The autopsy confirmed it was a suicide that occurred shortly after her arrival.

Ru Paul there just wants to blame cops, doesn't matter. Chances are he's very familiar with crime, jails and police. But that's not his fault, it's the police's fault, it's the town's fault, it's his father's fault for not being around, but most importantly... It's the white man's fault.

After looking up her records, F this woman. When she wasn't out drinking and driving, she was breaking into people's homes, shoplifting, robbing and stealing everything in sight to support her drug habit.
She was a blight on society and she did everyone a favor. I assume she was on probation and didn't want to go back to her home, otherwise known as the county jail.
And this moron Ru is defending her. But you all are thick as thieves, aren't you?

Hole in the wall only takes 10 secs to do a walkthrough. If u do your homework you'll see alot of things happen at that station. Now someone's dead thats y the media is being involved. And no it's not the white mans fault neither is it a female fault asshole!

Looking at the news website a police officer faxed over the cause of death!?! Everyones know that officer is crooked and can't catch a homicide if it happened right in front of him! This can't keep happening if u going to judge this women for her past and not what she was locked up for this time. Then judge this officer who covers up and falsify and documents go unpunished! How many homicides did the city just have and still unsolved? But im thankful we have homicide detectives that knows how to investigate traffic tickets and summarys like murder!?!

Exactly. It took 10 seconds to do the walk through.
Oh wait. You expect that walkthrough to be an immediate and continuous task?
Sorry, pal. We don't need to spend our tax dollars on full time babysitters at the city drunk tank.
And the media is involved because that's what they do. They report the news. The more tawdry the better for the ratings odometer.
She took her own life. Ever heard of personal accountability?

Ru, if you can't judge someone by their past, how else are you supposed to judge them?
It's always the people with the shadiest of pasts that says crap like that.
Maybe you should've been a decent person in the past, then you wouldn't have any problems.

My point exactly. if u judging by ppl past then some of them shouldn't be cops! Now look into that. but because they have a badge, and know how to cover things up does not make it right! So do your homework.if you suppose to judge by past then how many crimes are you going let them falsify? and make us the citizens look guilty for stupid summarys! So just put the real criminals in witness protection and let them get away with real severe crimes. Then crack down on the summary ones! A crime is a crime! Let them put you away for something in your past that your innocent for now . I'll b the first one to put some rope in your holding cell then turn off the camera and torment you on how long your going away for a traffic violation!

MANY if not MOST people go all their lives without ever being in jail even once.

It is not "normal" to get jailed.

'Nuf said.

Don't think accommodations are up to snuff? DON'T GET SENT THERE to begin with.

As far as people crying "foul play" because some loser whacks herself, PUHLEASE.

Although, one thing I question is HOW she offed herself if the police did a thorough search etc. Of course, the way things are these days, they probably couldn't do a "thorough" search because some ACLU freak would be suing the city.

Is this even newsworthy? The lady whacked herself cause she apparently was a drunk. Look at your name. I mean your made up name. What kind of a name is that? Mr Perfect is right on the money. Mr RU apparently likes to blame others, mainly the police, for a thug's actions. Don't be a burden to society, don't be a burden to my paycheck, don't have kids out of wedlock, don't be a drunk/thug - and you'll be okay.
