Bipolar man steals $5 of snacks, dies in prison four months later

being jailed for four months after reportedly stealing $5 worth of
snacks, Jamycheal Mitchell was found dead in his prison cell, possibly
because he starved to death, according to family members. Mitchell was
deemed unfit to stand trial due to his bipolar disorder, and was
supposed to have transferred to a mental health facility, but never was.
Four months after his arrival, he died of what his aunt claims is a 90
pound weight loss. RT’s Anya Parampil has more details.
