She added, “A few months later, she got sick. She was depressed. … She was hospitalized.”
Carey’s sisters also came to her defense, questioning the fatal use of force by Capitol Hill police.
“What I do see is that perhaps maybe my sister was a little afraid being surrounded by officers with their guns drawn,” Valerie Carey said to Matt Lauer on the Today show. “My sister was fleeing. She was trying to figure out how to get out of there.”
Amy Carey-Jones echoed her sister’s sentiments, stating, “I feel that things could have been handled a lot differently. We still feel that there was maybe another story than what we’re being told.”
