The Death of Samantha Sutton


Looking at a case file doesn’t tell the whole story. It doesn’t tell the story of homemade soup and family outings and a young woman who just wanted to come home and just wanted to be clean. And it doesn’t tell of the questions Samantha Sutton’s family are left with in the wake of her death at 22.  For those parts of the story, the parts of the story that tell us who Samantha was and the impact her loss had on her family, I spoke with her mother Dell.
