Police Drag Ailing Pregnant Woman From Hospital, She Dies in Custody

Good judgment, as always


Authorities believe it was some type of medical condition that caused the death of a woman held in a Garvin County jail holding cell earlier this week.

The woman was identified by two law enforcement agencies as 33-year-old Jamie Lynn Russell. In an obituary submitted to the PV Democrat her last name was listed as Fisher.

Russell was pronounced dead at the local hospital late Wednesday night after earlier becoming unresponsive while in a holding cell at the jail facility in Pauls Valley.
