BUFFALO, NY-- A candlelight vigil was held in memory of India Cummings Tuesday night.
Cummings, 27, died while at the Erie County Holding Center after being arrested in Lackawanna last February.
Cummings was taken to the jail after Lackawanna Police say she started to act irrationally from the use of synthetic marijuana. She then stole a car and led police on a brief chase. Her family told 2 On Your Side in March they believe Cummings had a medical breakdown.
A report by the county health department says she died from undetermined causes. An attorney for Cummings' family claims she did not receive proper treatment at the Holding Center.
"She entered with one injury, which she wouldn't have had but for Lackawanna Police breaking her arm, and then of course she left in much worse shape as we know when she ultimately passed away some five days later," says Matthew Albert, the attorney representing Cummings' family. "We are not going to rush our experts, but as I said we are expecting a lawsuit to be filed sooner rather than later."
The Sheriff's Office did not respond to our request for a comment on the case or Tuesday's vigil.
