When Aleah Jenkins was arrested last month for an outstanding warrant she had against her, we know that the last thing her or her family expected was that she would die while in custody.
San Diego Police say that Jenkins began vomiting at the scene of the arrest and was nauseous. They say that they called EMS but canceled because Jenkins said she only had an upset stomach. A while after that, while she was at police headquarters for processing, an officer noticed that Jenkins was unresponsive. She was taken to the hospital and put on life support. She died on December 6.
Now her family wants answers. They say that camera footage shows Jenkins asking for help while in the back of a police car. They want to know why she wasn’t immediately taken to the hospital.
