Woman lay dead in a Nevada jail cell for hours after deputy found her unresponsive
Kelly Coltrain was jailed in Mineral County for
unpaid parking tickets on July 19, 2017.
She told her jailers she was withdrawing from heroin,
and was prone to seizures while withdrawing.
At 5 p.m. on July 22, a deputy made her clean up her
own vomit, although she was too sick to stand.
An hour later she went into convulsions and died.
Her jailers made no effort to get help or to
resuscitate Coltrain. They left her body for 11 hours.
