A 19-year-old woman involved in a traffic stop committed suicide after shooting herself through the mouth while her hands were cuffed behind her back, Virginia police said.
Police said they handcuffed Wilson and, while attempting to apprehend her boyfriend, 27-year-old Holden Medlin, he became combative and ran away from the scene.
Cops then reportedly left Wilson handcuffed with her hands behind her back as they ran to catch Medlin.
While unattended, police say, she was able to grab a weapon out of the Lexus, "contorted" her body and shot herself through the mouth.
An internal investigation was launched after her death, which has since been concluded, though police have declined to comment on its outcome.
She told the station she spoke to witnesses who told her the police were responsible for her daughter's death.
“There is a few different stories, but they all end the same: that the police shot her,” she said. »
