On Easter Sunday 2016, Wakeisha Wilson's body was found in an Los Angeles Police Department jail cell, and her death was was initially ruled a suicide. However, Wilson's family and the rest of the black community fought to learn the truth to what looked to be a very suspicious incident.
Earlier this year, the LA City Council paid a $298K settlement to end the legal dispute. But, in the case of Wilson's aunt, Sheila Hines-Brim, the fight is far from over.
According to NBC Los Angeles, Hines-Brim and another woman, Melina Abdullah, were detained after their protest during a Los Angeles Police Commission meeting on Tuesday, May 8. Hines-Brim allegedly threw a powdery substance at LAPD Chief Charlie Beck. Abdullah is a leader of the Black Lives Matter Los Angeles chapter.
"I used her ashes," Hines-Brim said. "So they could be with him. So he could feel her because he murdered her."
"That's Wakiesha. She's going to stay with you," Hines-Brim shouted as she walked away from Chief Beck.
Hines-Brim told CBS Los Angeles that she heard her niece's spirit inform her to use her ashes.
The meeting immediately went into recess following the alleged incident.
