A pregnant Marion County jail inmate died from internal bleeding caused by an abnormal pregnancy, police said today.
Amber Redden, 27, collapsed in a bathroom at Liberty Hall, at 675 E. Washington St., at 10 p.m. Sunday.
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officials said Redden’s death was “natural” and caused by a ruptured ectopic pregnancy that led to hemorrhaging.

Given the timing of Redden's collapse, 10 pm. on a Sunday, I wonder if this is one of those times when medical personnel was at Liberty Hall. One would think more immediate care could well have saved this young woman's life. It is interesting that IMPD conducted the investigation of Liberty Hall which is actually the Sheriff's turf.
Fortunately, there is a new sheriff in town - John Layton. Hopefully he will, unlike his predecessor, take his job to oversee the private correctional companies seriously and not be afraid to conduct investigations and demand that private companies follow the law and their contracts.
