The Special Investigations Unit has released the name of a 39-year-old woman who died while in police custody earlier this week.
The SIU says London Police were called to the intersection of Highbury Ave. and Trafalgar St. to reports of a woman obstructing traffic on Wednesday afternoon.
Debra Chrisjohn was arrested and taken to the Elgin County OPP detachment on an outstanding warrant.
Just after 7:30 p.m., Chrisjohn was rushed to St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
The Special Investigations Unit has assigned four investigators and one forensic investigator to the case.
