In their words
Attorney Heather Mitchell released this statement on the family's behalf:
“Jamie Lynn Fisher's family still has many questions and concerns about the events surrounding her death and hope to have answers soon. The initial reporting of her death has caused additional stress as it implied that she was a drug abuser. That is simply not accurate. Jamie's drug screen upon admission to Pauls Valley General Hospital Emergency Room was completely clean. There is a legitimate explanation for the medication she had in her possession. Any ‘uncooperative behavior' in the emergency room was a reaction to the narcotic medication given to her in the ER and her underlying undiagnosed medical condition.
“The family is concentrating on supporting and caring for Jamie's 10 year old son who is heartbroken over the loss of his mother. Unfortunately, the family is also having to protect him legally. An alleged and estranged ‘husband' who was engaged to another woman and in jail on felony charges at the time of Jamie's death is attempting to gain legal control over her estate. Also, Pauls Valley General Hospital has hired a private investigator who is contacting and attempting to interview Jamie's friends and witnesses to these events.
