Woman Dies While in New Britain Police Custody

An investigation is underway after a woman died while in New Britain police custody early Saturday morning.

Officers were called to a verbal argument on Saturday, where police said 45-year-old Tamara Mifflin, of New Britain, was found in violation of a protective order.

Mifflin was processed at New Britain Police Department without incident.

While in police custody, authorities said Mifflin suffered from an unexpected medical event.

Police and EMS attempted to revive Mifflin, but were not successful, investigators said. Mifflin was pronounced dead early Saturday morning.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner and the New Britain State Attorney's Office are investigating.

An autopsy is expected to be performed on Mifflin in the near future.
