I tried to find the Hart County Jail website to see who the inmates were there, but I couldn't find it. If anyone knows it, or finds it please post on here so I can go check it out.

You can look under Monroe County Jail site and it will show detainees. It does not show her being in Hart County, it shows Barren County. Sunday paper says Marita Whitehouse. I guess they call her Mandy, I heard. Autopsy was done, results pending. She did not die in the jail. She was flown to Louisville and died at the hospital.

The Sunday paper does say Hart County, but the jail web site says Barren. Guess Monroe County has not updated their site.

Just wanted to clarify this.

It is Marita Whitehead. Not Mandy/ Margaret Whitehead that was married to Shawn Woodard that aslo has abrother named Shawn. They are two different people.

Marita hung herself once before in Western state and was on the venitlator for quite some time. She tied bed sheets together before at Western State hosptial and hung from the ceiling somehow.
just wondering

Are you sure it's not Mandy Jones Whitehead. She is about 31 or 32. I went to school with her but
I have never heard of a Marita Whitehead. Who are her parents? Was she married and have children? I was just wondering beacuse I do know the Mandy Whitehead. I hate to hear about anyone killing theirselves. There are so many people out there who need a lot of help. This is a very sad world to live in.

no it was not mandy whitehead and no she was not married to shawn woodard. she just lived with him and 3 of her children are his the other 2 can belong to anybody. but she gave them all the woodard name and is drawing social security off of shawn woodard on them. i wouldn't mourn if it had of been her, her sister, her mother or her brother.
