Rally calls for probe into 2013 police custody death
Family and friends of a Brooklyn woman who died in police custody three years ago rallied in Prospect Park South Monday to demand charges for those involved in her death.
Police arrested Kyam Livingston in July 2013. According to Livingston's family, other prisoners who were at Brooklyn Central Booking told them that she was crying out for medical attention and say police ignored her before she eventually died.
Police say Livingston was drunk when they encountered her, and they took her to Kings County Hospital before her arrest.
Livingston's supporters called on the district attorney to open a new investigation into the death.
"These officers, all these officers as far as I'm concerned, are responsible for the death of my daughter or she would still have been here today," says Anita Neal, Livingston's mother. 
The district attorney's office tells News 12 Brooklyn that after an initial investigation, they revisited the case last year but found no criminality.
