On April 3rd, 4 NYPD officers “crisis response” resulted in their physically restraining a troubled Queens woman, Sheresse Francis, who subsequently died of an apparent heart attack. The police report said that she died on arrival to the hospital but emergency room officials found that she had been dead for 90 minutes, leading Sheresse’s family to sue NYPD to release their records about what transpired that tragic day.
