City Silent On What Happened To Loved One

The family of a woman who died after her arrest and detention in Springfield  is seeking more information about what happened.  

An obituary posted  for Vermont native Madelyn Linsenmeir gained national attention for its  candid description of her struggle with opioid use.  

The ACLU of  Massachusetts earlier this week announced a lawsuit it has filed along  with the group Prisoners' Legal Services for access to the records.  

Her  family claimed in a statement that Linsenmeir was refused medical  attention when she was booked in September, and that the lack of  transparency from Springfield officials is troubling.

The City has not commented on the suit.
