The death of 33 year old Pauls Valley, Oklahoma woman came just hours after she went to the hospital seeking help for severe abdominal pain.
Hospital staff reported she (Jamie Lynn Russell) wouldn’t cooperate, in too much pain to even lie down, so employees asked a Pauls Valley police officer to assist.
(...) when police found two prescription pills that didn’t belong to Jamie, police took her to jail for drug possession.
That’s where Jamie sat for less than two hours before being found unresponsive.
“She had a medical release from the hospital stating that she was fit for incarceration,” Rhodes said.
The state medical examiner’s office confirms Jamie died from a ruptured ectopic pregnancy, where an embryo implants outside the uterus.
A spokesperson for that agency said their investigation is basically complete (and) they found no criminal wrongdoing on the part of the jail staff.
