One week after being taken to a hospital to have a crack pipe removed from her private parts, a 31-year-old woman has died.
According to reports, April Rollison was arrested on drug charges on December 16. Upon arriving at the police station and undergoing a body scan, officers noticed that two items were lodged inside of the woman’s vagina.
Rollison was taken to a local hospital to have the items removed, and it was there that she was able to ingest some crack. Reports say that Rollison told a nurse that she needed to use the bathroom, and when the nurse left the room to retrieve the bedpan, the woman took a prescription bottle containing two grams of crack cocaine out of her vagina and ingested some of the rocks.
“While the nurse was getting the bedpan ... she was able to remove it from her personal area,” police spokesman Scott Wilder said.
The nurse and deputy, who also had stepped out of the room, discovered the bottle and a white substance on the floor before medical staff removed the pipe from the woman’s vagina.
Rollison was taken to jail after the pipe was removed, but during booking, the 31-year-old went into distress. Police say that they believe the woman may have died as a result of ingesting the crack rocks, but autopsy results have not yet come back. Preliminary tests, however, have revealed that the woman tested positive for methamphetamine, amphetamine, cocaine and marijuana.
