Family of 19-year-old who died after illness at Edmonton Remand Centre questions medical response

 


The mother of a 19-year-old who died in June after an illness while in custody at the Edmonton Remand Centre says she believes her son would still be alive if he had been taken to hospital sooner.

"He could have been saved," said Wyoma Cabry.

Wyoma Cabry still doesn't know what led to her youngest son Erik's death, as she said she hasn't seen any official medical reports yet. But she said his health deteriorated rapidly in the weeks after his arrest.
