24-year-old inmate was found dead inside a Virginia jail cell after being held without bail for four months over an alleged theft of $5 worth of groceries, according to a report.
Jamycheal Mitchell, who suffered from mental problems and may have starved himself to death, had been arrested in April for allegedly stealing a Zebra Cake, Mountain Dew and Snickers bar from a 7-Eleven, The Guardian reported.
He was just deteriorating so fast," she said. "His body failed. It is extraordinary. The person I saw deceased was not even the same person."
Mitchell, who had bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, had refused to eat and take his medication while serving time behind bars for misdemeanor charges of petty larceny and trespassing, his family said.
"He never did anything serious, never harmed anybody, his aunt said.

Living in India, I think you have a long time before you can make fun of America's corruptness
OT: Pretty fucked, however you need to do time for committing a crime, I know 4 months is a huge amount of time, but you don't know what happened inside the jail, it could've been good for him minus the fact that he starved himself.
