The death of a young mother in the St. Bernard Parish jail in April 2014 did not get a lot of public attention. No marches. No rallies. No protests by "Black Lives Matter" or other advocacy groups.
But behind the scenes, the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Justice Department has paid close attention to the death of Nimali Henry, who died 10 days after being taken into custody. Multiple sources have told WWL-TV that the FBI and federal prosecutors are deep into a criminal probe into the circumstances of Henry's death.
