Singer Sean Levert, the younger brother of Gerald Levert, died on March 30 in the Cuyahoga County Jail in Cleveland, Ohio, after officials failed to properly give him his prescribed medication. Levert even pleaded with officers for his meds and was later told he would have to wait to see a doctor, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Writer Connie Schultz suggests, “Levert might still be alive if someone, anyone, had cared to protect him.” Police are now investigating the case, after a huge outrage from the Cleveland community.
