Ralkina Jones

Video footage captured a black Cleveland woman expressing her fear of dying hours before she was found dead in a jail cell.

In the video footage released on Tuesday, Ralkina Jones, 37, told jailers “I don’t want to die in your cell.”

Jones was arrested on July 24 after attempting to run over her ex-husband with her car in a grocery store parking lot.

Prior to using her car as a deadly weapon, Jones assaulted her husband inside the grocery store, then pursued him into the parking lot where she swung a tire iron at him.

Jones, who had a medical history of hypertension, rapid heart rate and migraines, told officers she needed medication for her heart disorder.

Jones was diagnosed with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), a disorder that increases the heart beat rapidly when going from a lying to a sitting or standing position.

The sudden increase in heart rate can cause dizziness, light-headedness, migraine headaches, shortness of breath and fainting.

Jones also told jailers she was diagnosed with a brain aneurysm.

Jones was transported to a local hospital when jailers noticed she was sluring her words. She was assessed by medical personnel at the hospital and returned to the jail at 10:40 p.m. on July 25.

Jones was found dead of natural causes in her jail cell on the morning of July 26.

Despite her documented medical problems, Jones' family insists she was in "good health" prior to being arrested.

“Someone’s going to answer to it. If not, everyone’s going to answer to it, because you can’t just do this,” her sister told WKYC-TV.

      Sandra.. my Wut 22 had SVT. Supraventricular Tachycardia. They used cryo to go through an artery in her leg and froze the parts of her heart that was beating irregular. She would be sitting still and he heart would just take off racing like she was scared and ran a mile...

    • Smartypants

      She was doing too much for someone with medical issues. Granted, the police should have gotten her medical attention earlier.

      My beautiful black people we have to do better.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      I knew she had a heart condition.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      so part of her heart is frozen? educate..

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      I want to know who has insurance on these people? There's some shady b'ness going on tween the town's insurance agent and a couple other folks.

    • MisTaken

      I'm a little confused... but out of respect for the deceased....I am going to take my bolero off and chill .. :kona:

    • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

      I think they actually used it to kill the crazy cells that were beating off beat with the rest of the heart. But in a sense she did have parts of her heart frozen

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      "She was doing too much for someone with medical issues."
      ^^^^^

      I agree. Did you see that big bag of medications? She had too much going on medically to be so violent and irresponsible. The lieutenant was very concerned for her health. Sadly, it was her time to go.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      That is cool....and Im glad she is ok

    • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

      Yeah she was in high school when it started it took forever for them to take us serious about it. We went to Sibley Heart and they hooked her up to a monitor and that's when the finally found it cuz it would happen so quick and by the time we got to the hospital..it would stop. scary

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      That happens when the signal to the 2 big lower chambers of the heart goes haywire and the heart chambers start beating rapidly because they're not getting the signal telling them to beat normally. So freezing the area near the nodes in the heart (where the signal is coming from) can regulate the heartbeat.

      ------------------------
      This is where I get lost. She had a laundry list of ish wrong and was cleary acting irrational. She knew her conditions better than anyone else so why was her azz out trying to commit vehicular homicide...

    • Wildcat34

      Unfortunately, I believe it wouldn't make a difference if she was arrested or not. She was over extended well beyond what her body was able to allow. It's an unfortunate turn of events, but when you have heart issues and are taking medications, warning labels are included to advise you of what not to do.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Just a tiny part of the heart is frozen.

    • Smartypants

      If she had not been carrying on like she was, which led to her arrest, she would probably still be alive.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Thanks, I had going to have to read up.

    • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

      She did well with it. Even managed to be on the track team for her final year in school.... with a whooole lotta medical releases though lol. And strange enough.. now because she has had that when she goes to the dentist if they have to do any work they make her take antibiotics first before they will even touch her...

    • PettyEyezPrime

      Come sit with me because ?

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Chuh… If I had a brain aneurysm I would be sitting down quietly somewhere.

    • Wildcat34

      The family has no case. They will need to prove that her conditions did not exist, which clearly isn't the case. Reminds me of another family that will have to do the same....

    • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

      I'm sorry babe I really am but umm your sister died of natural causes. She had ALOTof serious medical problems and running behind a cheating lying no good man did not help. And if I read correctly she was in jail from June 24 until July 25 why aint nobody go get her?

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Wow. Good for her! When dentists hear heart problem, the first thing they think is endocarditis. That's not what she had.

    • mzwhang90210

      She was 37 yrs old and died of natural causes???

      How Sway???
      And um...are we not allowed to post GIFs/JPEGS anymore? I don't see the lil pic icon.

    • Wildcat34

      The same reason Sandra Bland's family didn't get her.

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      See you the real MVP because I didn't notice she was in there for a month. I thought it was a day later.

    • MissHarlem

      ? girl bye

    • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

      Oh. They always give me a prescription for her to take prior to anything they do. So should I explain that it isn't necessary because they have me thinking something bad will happen if she doesn't take them.

    • mzwhang90210

      Maybe it was because of all the meds/medical issues, that she was acting so irrationally?
      Certain medications (esp when used in conjunction with each other), can cause questionable behaviors.
      Just sayin...

    • MissHarlem

      Sit your ass down somewhere and get your heart back to its natural rhythm. Over here swinging tire irons, running over people I mean chit what else she did? Ran a marathon. Like WTF

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      gotta be a Typo: she was arrested on July 24 died 15 hours later

    • MissHarlem

      More of a reason she needed some chill.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      They will give her the prescription anyway. To cover their asses just in case.

    • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

      Sandra may we have some clarification please. Was she jail a month or is that a typo. The people wanna know.

    • Nina de la Hermosa

      SHE AINT GOT THE ANSWERS

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Dentists are forever over prescribing antibiotics needlessly. That's why there are so many super bugs going around.

    • mzwhang90210

      Hey bew.
      I agree...somewhat.
      Because certain meds can help in one way while simultaneously causing seperate undesirable side effects. i.e. will help to lower blood pressure but can also contribute to poor impulse control.
      But I feel ya tho.

    • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

      I gotcha. Okay. Thanks Sandra!

    • thrift.store.jungle

      seems like she was a nice enough lady. she should have been an advocate for herself before she got locked up. ain't no ? worth my life. my thoughts are with her daughter. what a shame.

      iJones also told jailers she was diagnosed with a brain aneurysm.
      Sounded to me like she said brain injury on the video. I could be wrong tho.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      That's a far cry from swinging a tire iron at someone or trying to run them over. Not to mention beating them up in a grocery store and pursuing them into the parking lot -- all of which requires mental alertness.

    • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      You can be 37 and die of natural causes, hun.

    • mzwhang90210

      No I didn't think that. However you yourself must admit that dying of natural causes before the age of 40 is an exception rather than a rule.
      Let's be real here..if you read that somebody 87 yrs old has died of natural causes, it is to be expected. Somebody who isn't even 40 yet..well that will raise eyebrows.

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

    • Tippie Toes

      In the video she seems out of it like whatever actions that transpired before she ended up in the cell could have already starting affecting her. She seems drunk but it's probably her lack of medication. So sad I hope this horrific trend stops. Stop getting arrested and stop putting them in cells and they die.

    • mzwhang90210

      Sandra one can be mentally alert and still be dead set on causing harm to another person. I didn't mean to imply that the meds had her "zonked out."
      I know you've read about folks taking anti-psychotic meds..who've committed crimes against folks. (homicides, mass murders, suicide.)
      One broad stroke of explaination just won't cover the whole canvass.

    • OpinionHated

      Not for nothing isn't it more likely the things she did prior to being jailed caused her issues rather than sitting in jail... just saying not everything between cops and blacks is a hate crime... these "brutality" claims are getting ridiculous... if my azz had all those health issues no way I got time to be worried about no trifling man.... wtf...

    • Tippie Toes

      Yes I think that's what made her pass she was probably already having a heart attack and didn't even know or already had one....getting that angry to run someone over is rage.

    • mzwhang90210

      lmaoooooooooooooo...sheddup.

      Hey Opie, smh... LOL!

    • Tippie Toes

      I know a friends brother passed with no medical history and died at 38 of a heart attack I had another friend who didn't do drugs or anything - we graduated together he died of a heart attack out of nowhere.

    • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

      I have high blood pressure.... I could go from zero to 1000 in 60 seconds. My doctor said it makes some people highly agitated and aggressive. I know that I had to change my diet because being angry and going off is counterproductive .
      What a sad way to go out of this world, she must have known she was rapidly declining . Her family has there answer though, swinging a tire iron after physically assaulting someone can wear down a healthy person.

    • MissHarlem

      Hope she rip and her fam don't act foolish.

    • Tippie Toes

      I have HBP and I promise you my heart lets me know what I can and can't do and the main thing I won't do is get to the point where I see red- it has changed my life

    • Tippie Toes

      I have HBP also and I anger and get annoyed easily but I can't do the zero to 100 and if I do it is moderate. This disease has sat me down.

    • MissHarlem

      I believe it started right before she was sent to her cell. I just get upset when people lose their lives over rage or stupidity

    • Tippie Toes

      Especially black folks where HBP is rampant in our communities as well as diabetes. I can tell by the way she was talking something was happening to her then.

    • Tippie Toes

      But wait they took her to the hospital and then cleared her had she had a stroke or heart attack they would have detected that and they should have checked for that based on her medical history.

    • OpinionHated

      hey Nancy Drew...and you know I wanted to use that as an excuse to beat somebody azz - I told my doc as much - so you mean this is a green light to wild out (starts singing DMX ya'll gon make me lose my mind up in hey up in hey.....lol)

      I didn't know about the hospital visit. I agree

    • MookieFly

      I gotta agree with others that she was doing just a little too much, especially with all the heart condtions. Prays go out to the family.

    • Chloe

      I think we are looking at the wrong thing. If she was sent to the hospital because of slurred speech, why was she sent back to jail so quick. Hospitals don't care about no damn inmates.

    • Tippie Toes

      Yes so either my theory is wrong or they didn't give her the proper assessment.

    • OpinionHated

      her family is seeing $$$$$... they needed to get her azz some obamacare and a psychologist.... if they want to blame anybody blame the docs who sent her azz back - cops are not doctors if the doc said she good then she good....

    • Its Me

      Oh I KNOW. I am like @Tippie. I know MAD folks who have gone to glory younger than me. I just turned 38. I TRY to do the right thing. I will admit, I dont eat so great. I did stop smoking 2 years ago tho.

      See I suffer from insomnia also I'm going to figure it out I'm good unless I'm having some wine which happens to be most evenings LOL

    • mzwhang90210

      I think folks are quick to try and blame somebody, anybody for a sudden death.

      Sometimes it's not the decedents fault, not the authorities fault, sometimes death just comes with no rhyme or reason.

      I think to accept that tho....means that we all have to accept our own mortality ....and realize that the same thing could happen to us. If not in a jail cell, in a cubicle at work.
      Death is only logical in the sense that it is sometimes illogical.

      The best that we can do is hope that if death does visit us unexpectedly..we are at least wearing clean underwear.

      It is an exception only if the deceased had an unremarkable medical history. This lady had a plethora of serious medical problems. Any one of which could have killed her. Therefore, she died of natural causes.

    • Wildcat34

      I'm not sure either. It's shameful and especially since people allow their judgment to be shrouded by emotion. Clearly, the family still wants to avoid the question as to why they didn't pay her bail. The answer is quite obvious.

    • Wildcat34

      Well said. Death is one of the biggest mysteries in which we have no control.

    • Cricket404

      This really disturbed me. From what I hear her husband was no good and the grown kids take after him. She looked like she just lost a lot of weight from illness or gastro?, she also said she had an anxiety attack. She knew she wasn't feeling right- her trembling voice, when she rubs her hand across her stomach- fix it Jesus!!. She died in her sleep, but what shut down? her heart? her liver from all those meds? or was it a stroke? I've had a severe anxiety attack and constant adrenaline dumps that lasted for hours, doctor told me that as long as my EKG was good and I had no blockage, I'm good. I don't wanna die in my sleep!!!!

    • Queen Negus

      I agree however some medications side effects could have caused her violent and irresponsible behavior as well. When it comes to brain medications, as I stated before ALL medication effects Blacks differently as suppose to whites. Some testing for meds are mainly performed on whites and Drs thinks it will work on US based on the experiment study!!
      PSI will wait on her autopsy which she might have to have two done. One from the family and other from the state.

      not for nothing.. she did try to kill her ex first. Then with the kid at the dealership where I stay. If these were white people nobody would of wagged a finger..

The only people who have the right to be mad is the family and even that's they problem if they choose it to be. Ask me If I'd hide a fugitive in my house? No. Friend or family? It's no? @Ms_Mobetta

    • Mo Mobetta

      She got herself workedup..Knowing you have that condition, you'd think one seek peace in there life.. But they use excuses like that to raise H-E-L-L She spoke death unto her life the moment she made the decision to try and mow down her ex.. The put the stamp on it in the Jail.

      What's a "wut 22"?

      “Someone’s going to answer to it. If not, everyone’s going to answer to it, because you can’t just do this,” her sister told WKYC-TV.

      Yeah, shut up sis. Your illogical sister got herself worked up and tried to kill someone. Then has the nerve to say she "doesn't want to die in jail", as if someone put her in there for no reason..

      Hello SR! I've been a long time lurker on your board for years, mainly to read the ridiculous comments posted from the Roses! (They keep me laughing) However, I had to add some clarity to this tragic situation by shedding some light on RALKINA as person! She and I were roommates in college and she was one of the closest friends that I've ever had. It saddens me to hear or read people speaking negatively about her without knowing the real person she truly was versus just judging her on a few terrible actions she made one night out of 37 years on this earth. Prior to this situation she was never arrested for any crime whatsoever. So this type of behavior from her was completely out of character. Kina was not a violent person, but I CAN'T say the same thing for her ex-husband, who's in the middle of all this mess. He was recently released from prison in February/March for kidnapping her at gunpoint and assaulting her among other charges. She's told me about several situations of physical, mental, and emotional abuse that she suffered at his hands. Kina was only around 5"2 while he is about 6"4, so she was no match for him physically. While I didn't speak to her the night she was arrested, I do know that he'd been harassing her since his release from prison. I'm only speculating at this point just knowing her the way that I did, but do believe that the night of the incident she just snapped after dealing with his abuse and harassment for so long. I think she decided to "fight fire with fire" so to speak! I believe she decided to hit him where she knew it would hurt which (like most men) was his car. Now of course I can't condone her actions that night and like I stated earlier I didn't speak to her that night so I'm merely guessing as to what caused her to behave so irrational, especially with her daughter Kayla in the car with her. Kina had a brain aneurysm, high blood pressure, heart murmur and she suffered from severe depression. She underwent gastric bypass surgery a few years ago but still naked with her weight. So I do know she was on numerous medications including migraine meds, antidepressants, anti-anxiety pills and sedatives for insomnia. So with all those medications combined that could've altered her behavior that night but again I'm only speculating. She endured many forms of abuse and neglect throughout her life from watching her mother struggle with drug addiction, which left Kina (only being a child herself) to have to lookout and practically raise her six younger siblings. Her uncle (whom happened to be her best friend because they were so close in age) was shot and killed by the police a few years ago. Her father was never a steady presence in her life which left a huge void in her, especially where men were concerned. She, like many women with daddy issues, always seemed to find herself in love with the wrong type of man, just like her ex-husband. I truly believe his abuse & harassment towards her drove her to that breaking point and she decided to fight back and unfortunately she reacted in the wrong way leading up to her getting arrested. Last thing I want say is that it's a shame K(ayla) was there to witness that. However, Kinda was a great mother to K. That was her only child and she adored her. Kina expressed to me more than once that K was her only reason for living. I do not believe that she would knowingly and willfully put her daughter in any danger, which leads me to believe that she basically snapped or flipped out for just those few minutes that she was going after her ex-husband. Of course everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I respect that. However, the bloggers and readers should try keeping in mind that these headlines and stories are about REAL people with loved ones left behind to mourn their lost. It can be difficult seeing your loved one(s) being dragged on the internet by total strangers who don't know them or even know the full story. I just had to get a little of that frustration off my chest Ms. Sandra Rose. Many blessing to you and your Roses.

      Per the information provided she requested multiple times for medication and even told the officers she feared for her life yet they ignored her and her serious health condition(s). She should have received medical attention.

      Oh hello,
      Old Roses do not use our kids names on here so we use our login name and their ages.. So Wut 22 is my 22 year old.

      @EnquiringMind thank you for advocating for Kina's character. I grew up with her. Our street fam was very close. It breaks my heart to see Kina in her last days like this. Didn't know all of this was going on. However I trust that all things will work out for the well being of her daughter K.

      Ohhh okay.. Cuz I googled "wut 22", and the results didn't make sense to me Hahaha

      Clearly you didn't watch the video. The jailers carefully went over her medications WITH HER. They asked questions and even filmed their interactions with her. She did receive her medications, but she still died due to her serious medical disorders. Sadly, it was her time to go.

      They can be trifling but a woman can never get another woman as riled up as d*ck can.

      Lol. Dack does make females crazy, but I've experienced some very emotionally challenged females, especially ag's. Chit, I've dealt with some.
