Death of Homeless Woman in St. Louis Jail Draws Scrutiny

The death of a homeless woman in St. Louis, Missouri, last year is now drawing national scrutiny over revelations of how she died in police custody. Twenty-nine-year-old Anna Brown had gone to the hospital seeking emergency medical treatment for leg pain. When she refused to leave the emergency ward, she was carried to jail by her arms and ankles and left on the floor of her cell. Within 15 minutes, she had stopped moving and was soon after pronounced dead. The officers who arrested her reportedly suspected she was at the hospital seeking drugs. But an autopsy later revealed she had had blood clots in her legs and lungs and had no drugs in her system. The St. Louis police never announced Brown’s death. Her story only came to light six months later after an anonymous caller tipped off the St. Louis Post-Dispatch newspaper. Brown, who was African American, was the mother of two children. Her family is reportedly considering bringing a wrongful death suit against the hospital and police.
