Ashley Smith

FILE–An undated family handout photo of Ashley Smith. The case of the troubled teenage inmate thought to have killed herself in an isolation cell has taken an unexpected twist as an internal report now reveals the death was likely an accident. Extracts from a Correctional Services Canada report filed in court show psychiatrist Margo Rivera concludes that “no one intended Ashley Smith to die, least of all Ashley Smith herself.” Smith died in an isolation cell at the Grand Valley Institution for Women in Kitchener, Ont., in October 2007.
