Family of Ta’neasha Chappell Hires Breonna Taylor’s Legal Team After Her Death in Indiana Jail

A Louisville woman died last week while incarcerated in southern Indiana, and since then, few details have been released about what happened.

Now, the team of lawyers who have represented the family of Breonna Taylor will now help Ta’neasha Chappell’s family as well.

Indiana State Police said Chappell, 23, was in custody of the Jackson County Jail. She was arrested by ISP on May 26 after being accused of shoplifting and leading police on a multi-county chase. (Scroll down for more info)

She was found Friday at the jail with something wrong that prompted her to be rushed to a hospital in Seymour, where she died.

An autopsy was performed Sunday, but results are not yet available.

Chappell’s sister told WLKY she had some problems at the jail.

“First and foremost, she had got into an altercation where they sliced her neck. That was the first thing she had to seek medical attention for that. Then a little bit after that, she was crying to me and she phoned me and she was like, ‘You got to get me out of here. They’re going to kill me in here,'” Ronesha Murrell said.

Her family said days before her death, they saw her and she was in good spirits.

Now, they are waiting for answers on her death and will get help from Taylor’s legal team.

Sam Aguiar posted on Facebook that he, Ben Crump and Lonita Baker are on the case.
