Bell had filed a lawsuit against six companies involved with the water scandal, as well as three individual government, or former government, employees, claiming that her child had been poisoned by lead in the contaminated water in her home.
"Sasha was a lovely young woman who cared deeply for her family, and especially for her young child," her attorney Corey M. Stern told MLive. "Her tragic and senseless death has created a void in the lives of so many people that loved her. Hopefully, her child will be lifted up by the love and support from everyone who cared deeply for Sasha."
While Bell’s case was just one of 64 lawsuits filed on behalf of 144 children, her lawsuit being one of the first played an important role in determining the futures of other subsequent cases.
The Flint police have someone in custody for the murders, but have not announced charges or the motive.
Her lawsuit will continue despite her passing, and a representative will be appointed for her child.
