The Flint Journal has reported that Sasha Bell was one of the first people to file a lawsuit over the water crisis in Flint, which saw city water become contaminated with lead after officials chose to switch to the Flint River as its main drinking source. According to the outlet, Bell claimed that her child suffered from lead poisoning as a result of the switch. Police haven’t stated whether Bell’s child is the one they discovered in the aftermath of this week’s shooting.

“Sasha was a lovely young woman who cared deeply for her family, and especially for her young child. Her tragic and senseless death has created a void in the lives of so many people that loved her. Hopefully, her child will be lifted up by the love and support from everyone who cared deeply for Sasha.”

Said Bell’s attorney Corey M. Stern.

Very sad story. Prayers go out to the two victims and the baby that will now have to grow up without his mother.
