Untangle the Knots Within: A Woman’S Passage to Find Answers to Her Sister’S Death in Police Custody

Front Cover
Author House, Nov 9, 2010 - Biography & Autobiography - 184 pages

In the very early hours of a Sunday morning, a woman is found running on a boulevard with no clothes on and screaming for help. She is found by a security guard patrolling the area. He calls it in as an assault, but what transpires after that call only ends in a quick death for her by the responders of the county she was found in. All tied up and no place to go. Eight minutes is all it took many responders to end her life and change the lives of those that loved her.

Haunted by the way her sister died, the author continues a search for answers of what really happened to her. After doing her own investigation into the police reports, seeing inconsistencies, reading about questionable in-custody deaths, and receiving very little help from the legal system, the media, lawmakers, and the Governor of Colorado at the time, she could only come up with what could have happened to her sister. The author decided writing about the ordeal would be the best way for healing and help others, who have lost loved ones in police custody and still suffer the mystery of their deaths.

Cynthia M. Andersen was born and lives in Colorado. She classifies herself as a "Jack of all trades, and Master of none."

Besides living in Colorado, she taught in Liberia,West Africa for over two years in the U.S. Peace Corp. It was during the beginnings of a civil war that would last over eleven years, and the bloodiest in Liberian history.

She also taught for a short time in Ft. Worth, Texas, was an airline attendent, tried out as a fire fighter for a suburb in Denver, Colorado, worked for a public pension fund, completed graduate school in business, worked in sales for a mining company, and is currently seeking a new journey for healing and moving forward to help others.
