A jury at a coroner’s inquest into the death of a 21 year old woman at the White Birch Remand Unit has concluded the death was accidental.
Breanna Kannick died in August of 2015 after suffering the effects of opioid withdrawal.
The coroner had asked the jury to determine if Kannick’s death was natural, an accident, suicide, homicide or undetermined.
While ruling the death was accidental, the jury also made 10 recommendations. They include training of staff, staffing numbers and qualifications, training of staff, and documented checks to be done every 30 minutes on inmates.
