Outrage grows over death of homeless St. Louis woman in jail cell By The Associated Press

RICHMOND HEIGHTS, Mo. (AP) ' Family members and activists are raising their voices to seek answers in the death of a homeless woman in a jail cell after being arrested for refusing to leave a St. Louis hospital where she had sought treatment for a sprained ankle.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch ( reported that an autopsy revealed blood clots killed 29-year-old Anna Brown in September when they migrated from her legs to her lungs. Brown's family has hired a lawyer, and Brown's mother, Dorothy Davis, said she wants answers.

St. Mary's Health Center says its staff responded properly, and a police official said they had no way to know of Brown's dire condition.

No lawsuit has been filed.
