On Saturday, a jail administrator noticed that Ralkina appeared to be lethargic. Ralkina was taken to HealthSpan. She returned to the jail shortly before 11 p.m. that night.
Around 12:45 a.m., paramedics were called again to check her vitals. According to officials, everything appeared to be normal.
Ralkina was observed throughout the night during routine jail checks.
Shortly after 7:30 a.m., she was found unresponsive in her jail cell bed.
The Medical Examiner has now completed an autopsy and says the death doesn’t appear “suspicious,” but it remains under investigation.
