I don't know how the Okeechobe County Jail said that they saw no signs of suicide! When I was in jail with her all she did was sleep all day, she never ate, she would call her son & then go back into her cell. She was pretty quiet. If you knew her outside jail, you would know right away something was wrong. You could tell this was eating at her. She was facing life in prison dor DUI Manslauter, her son lived with his father even when she was out of jail, and her daughter passed away just a couple years ago. She was small, maybe a year old or so, that obviously ripped her heart out too. on top of that she had to live with her charges of hitting the 25 year old man, not just that but not stopping at the accident, and knowing that he died due to her DUI. That's a lot to swallow. It's sad to say this but if I was in her place, I might have done the same thing. The Okeechobee County Jail is not a very nice place to be. Jail is not meant to be nice, but the jail is a private owned jail so kind of like a lot of things here in Okeechobee, it's deal with it or die. Sad to say Kerrie chose death, she hung herself in her jail cell. The way the cells are set up I can only assume that she had to use her flat sheet & tie it to the top of the door that does not have bars but has kind of like medal squares because the bars weave up and down and side to side making it like a tiny square medal door. then the only way she could have done it is to stand on the toilet and climb up on the sink and jump, or off the top bunk, but it it was off the top bunk i dont think the sheet would be long enough. It's just another crazy thing going on in Okeechobee. It said online that she did leave a suicide letter, but we obviously have no idea what iy said yet. the jail has been kind of shut down. The councelors that visit and have classes for the inmates have not been allowed to go into the jail due to the investigation. I have a feeling that a lawsuit will be coming soon. What's done is done, I just wish the best for her family, I know her son loves her with all bis heart. I know she was not worried about him, she told me that her son was very well taken care of, she infact said that all her kids were very well taken care of. My prayors go out to her children and family but most of all, I hope she gets to rest in peace with her baby girl she lost a while back. She never really finished grieving so I hope she can hold her baby girl once again! my prayors go out to all Kerries friends & family! God Bless You!!!! Stay Strong!!!
