When I read the first accounts of Misty Upham’s death, the report pretty much decided it was a suicide. The autopsy has revealed that she had died of blunt force trauma.
I read several reports on her death, and one mentioned that she was afraid of the police. She had allegedly been taunted by them while handcuffed in a police cruiser.
The fact that she is Native American speaks volumes on her treatment and the lack of aggressive investigating by the police.
It’s also interesting that at this moment, there are no large news outfits carrying the story. Why?
