Officials are investigating the death of 42-year-old Raynette Turner in her holding cell in Mount Vernon, New York. Turner is a mother of eight children who range in age from eight to 21. WCBS reports Turner died Monday afternoon after spending two days awaiting an arraignment. She was allegedly arrested for shoplifting at a wholesale food store called Restaurant Depot.
