Tina Edmond, 46, the mother of Janika Edmond, cries as she reflects on her daughter's life in Adrian, Michigan on Tuesday, June 13, 2017. Edmond, a former inmate at the Women's Huron Valley Correctional Facility, was found in her cell after an attempted hanging and died days later at a hospital. Two lawsuits and a criminal case have been filed in relation to her death after a corrections officer allegedly ignored Edmond's suicidal statements and request for a suicide prevention vest.
