Samantha Piercey died alone in her cell on May 26, 2018 while held in remand at the Newfoundland and Labrador Correctional Centre for Women in Clarenville. She was 28 years old at the time of her death and left behind two children.
Samantha’s mother Lisa Piercey has searched tirelessly for answers to explain her daughter’s death. The family believes her death was preventable.
Nelligan Law has issued a Statement of Claim alleging the Defendants failed to provide Samantha with proper and appropriate health care to treat her well-known mental health problems.
