Lebanon, PA — Victoria ‘Tori’ Herr died in Lebanon County Correctional Facility last month after police hesitated to provide her with medical care for several days. Herr was addicted to heroin and began to go into withdrawal when she was taken into custody.

This is a situation that can be potentially deadly if not handled with care. Sadly, the corrections officers at the jail accused her of “faking,” and refused to get her medical care until it was too late.

According to the family, Tori may have been abused by the officers while she was in custody. On a petition page for Tori, a loved one mentioned the abuse, saying that,

“On arrival, she was not given a medical physical. No one addressed her addiction. She went into heroin withdrawal that turned out deadly. She had begged for help but was denied. The guards said she was faking. Before she was taken to a hospital, they abused and neglected her in horrific ways that are better left unsaid. She had laid in a coma for five days before she died on April 5th, Easter Sunday.”

The police department said in a statement that “all protocols were followed” and that there was no wrong-doing in the girl’s death.

“At approximately 10:15 p.m. due to a medical emergency involving an inmate. Upon initial questioning of staff, all operational protocols appeared to be followed.

The PA State Police were notified of this incident and responded as per procedure,” the on-staff officer’s report said.

Tori’s mother Stephanie Moyer last spoke with her on Monday, March 30 after her arrest.

Moyer recalled to Lebanon Daily News that “I was like, ‘Tori what happened?’ and she said, ‘I don’t know, mom. But I’m seeing people die. I’m going to die,’ And I said, ‘Tori, you are not going to die, honey, you are just going through withdrawal. And she said, ‘I’m so thirsty. I’m so thirsty. I just want lemonade. They won’t give me lemonade. Can you put money on my account?‘ She said, ‘I’ve got to go,’ And I said, ‘Wait! How do I put money on your account?‘ And she said, ‘I don’t know, maybe go into the jail. I’ve got to go.’ And that was the end of our conversation. It was the last time I talked to her.”

    Thanks for the article. They are so similar to other state / country news about police brutality. No one will do ‘anything’ until it reaches ‘their’ door. Humanity has become shameful and brainwashed. God’s TWO laws… never harm another human & never harm another humans property. We’ve failed to keep a measly two laws.. because WE allow it to continue. The currency crash is nigh and maybe THEN, people will wake up.. stand up and say enough of this shit! or… they’ll cower and beg for more from the corrupt ‘illegal’ government that USES them for slavery! Time will tell!

    First, drugs use should not be a crime in the first place. People addicted to drugs need treatment from doctors in medical facilities, not medieval dungeons presided over by ignorant thugs drunk on power.
