Does anyone know anything about the 27 year old girl who was picke up for DUI Saturday night that was then later found dead in one of the holding cells at the Rowan County Jail?
When I saw that this person had died like she did, I went in to check and went to the rowan county site to see what all they had on her. From what I saw she was picked up for DUI, possesion of a legend drug and another drug charge. I would pretty well bet that she had a possible reaction to the drugs she was on that led to her untimely death. Just remember to not judge this poor girl from this mistake she made, but instead remember her grieving family in their time of sadness. Inmate found dead at 5am in rowan co detention. Name Tina Watkins of Salt Lick. When did they start keeping woman in rowan co detention?
Her family was told, she was having chest pains and they wouldn't take her to the hospital..( this link is a pic of her and her mug shot just hours befor she dyed )...http://www.rowancountydc.o rg/InmateList/Inmat..........

Kentucky State Police said in a news release Saturday that 27-year-old Tina Watkins, of Salt Lick, was found dead in her cell around 5 a.m.

Police said she was in jail on a charge of driving under the influence, but no arrest date was given.

An autopsy is scheduled for Saturday at the state medical examiner’s office, but officials do not suspect foul play.

The court reporters for each county are responsible for putting out any information about any of the cases. You can google or yahoo search and see if there is a local newspaper that has an online report or if your county has a website with the info you are looking for.
