Barnstable County Correctional Facility Sued Over Death

The estate of a Cape Cod woman who died by suicide at the Barnstable County Correctional facility is suing. 

Jessica DiCesare of Centerville was being held at the jail in 2017 on charges of receiving stolen property, driving uninsured and without a license, and drug possession. 

The suit names the Barnstable County Sheriff's Office and Correctional Psychiatric Services, the mental health services company used at the jail. 

It claims DiCesare's mental health issues were ignored while she was in custody.
