One fine body…
The West Australian Premier, Colin Barnett (pictured), says an internal police report on the death in custody of a Yamatji woman in August will be completed in coming weeks.
The death of the 22-year-old woman, who was jailed for unpaid fines in South Hedland, has again raised questions about WA custodial policy.
The woman's family has questioned why she was placed in the lock-up after being taken to hospital twice during her time in custody.
Mr Barnett told the ABC he believes the cause of death was a heart attack and he wants to see a coronial inquiry conducted as soon as possible, but a police report must be handed down first.
