On July 21, 2013 Kyam Livingston, a 37-year-old African American single mom, died in a holding cell in Brooklyn Central Bookings. According to witnesses, Kyam cried out in pain for a span of seven hours, only to have her pleas for help ignored by NYPD officers who made no effort to call an ambulance until after Kyam was dead.
Almost three months after Kyam's death, no one has been held accountable. A letter from Ms. Anita Neal (Kyam Livingston's mother) to Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly still is yet to be answered, and the NYPD continues to withhold evidence from the family's attorneys.
Click here to sign the family's petition to demand that the NYPD turn over the evidence and that District Attorney Charles Hynes prosecute those responsible for Kyam's unnecessary death.
