Inmate dies in the Montcalm Co. Jail

STANTON, Mich. — An inmate has died while serving time in jail in Montcalm County.

According to the Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office, Amber Lynae Bills, 34 of Big Rapids, was being held on two counts of contempt of court and for not having an operator license.

Deputies say Bills was found unresponsive  on Sunday and efforts to revive her were unsuccessful.

An autopsy revealed she had an undiagnosed perforated ulcer.  The final report with the Medical Examiner is pending.

Sheriff Michael Williams has ordered an external review of the the incident.

    This does not surprise me. I was a recipient of their “medical care” when Montcalm County violated my legal rights for medical marijuana back in 2016. Please see the following videos I posted: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL0r_VeOQx-0vx6Dq-4rqrrdK-OVeJsrcY. They ignored my medical requirements. I was told there was no video of my time in jail – from over six cameras in three different jail cells. No one seemed to care. Now, someone has died. Why is this conduct acceptable from those who are to “protect and serve” us?
