    VA - Tina Stiltner, 39, dies in Buchanan County jail, 31 Jan 2002


    Tina Stiltner had been arrested for DUI under the influence of drugs and felony child neglect when police found her weaving in traffic after dropped her kids off.

    She was taken to the Buchanan County Jail, where she died of ligature compression of her neck. It was either caused by self hanging, or at the hands of another.

    The only people there at the time were Tina and her Jailer, David Shawn Hicks.

    Authorities say that Hicks lied about what he did and saw in the moments before and after Stiltner was discovered, first in a deposition for a lawsuit brought by her family and later to a federal grand jury investigating the case.

    The civil case was dismissed.

    From September 2006:


    After deliberating five hours yesterday, the jury found 38-year-old David Hicks not guilty of five charges of perjury and two counts of obstruction of justice.

    Prosecutors said Hicks lied about the facts surrounding the death of Tina Stiltner because he feared repercussions about an inmate dying on his watch.
