The mother of Meredith Lickwola has hired a prominent local attorney to represent the interests of the family in her tragic and mysterious death in Police custody. Meredith Lickwola the 38-year-old single mom from Schuylerville was arrested by County Sheriffs on a misdemeanor petty larceny warrant after calling them for help with an unwanted guest in her home on St Patrick’s night.
The women was dragged out of her home transported to a darkened road by Saratoga County Sheriff’s deputies where City police met the deputies and took Lickwola to the police station, where she was processed and placed in the female holding cell. Hours later the woman would be dead in the city lockup.
Police have maintained a virtual news blackout that has only fueled speculation that they are hiding something. I for one am grateful for this development and the public should be too.
At this point I would suggest the Police come clean and release to the public the coroners’ and pathology reports. Remember the cover-up is often worse than the crime and when payday comes and justice is served you have no one to blame but yourselves.
And once again the Saratogian is asleep at the switch. The TU is said to be working on this for Tuesdays Edition and Bab's is said to be busy extraditing her head from her ass.
