Norristown Woman Found Dead in Her Home

Friends say the woman had recent medical issues.

According to a report from the , officers responded to the 800 block of Kohn Street just after 1 a.m. on Monday, July 9, for a report of an unresponsive subject. The woman was reportedly bleeding from the mouth and CPR was being administered.

On arrival, police found 26-year-old Jennifer Lewis lying on the couch in the living room of the home. She was reportedly unresponsive, not breathing and cold to the touch. Lewis was transported by Plymouth Ambulance to where she was pronounced dead at 1:38 a.m.

A male friend reportedly told police he was staying with Lewis to help her care for her three children because she had not been feeling well for the three days prior to her death. The friend told police that Lewis had multiple medical issues, including a recent onset of diabetes, and had refused to seek medical attention for her condition.

The friend told police he awoke shortly before 1 a.m. Monday morning and heard Lewis moaning and gasping. He called two other people for help and one of those people called 911.

Lewis' mother was also contacted and was informed of her daughter's condition by police. Montgomery County Children and Youth Services was contacted an apprised of the situation and the Lewis' mother agreed to take custody of the three children and stay at the home until official arrangements could be made.

The Montgomery County Coroner's office has not yet released the cause of death.

You people disgust me. Whatkind of sordid thoughts possess your fucked up minds? Saying he's an unfit father because he was locked up? I was locked up for 5 fucking years, but I gave my daughters and son everything they needed and sent them to college, so don't play thay bullshit. Or making false accusations as to him hitting his kids, treats them like shit? I have seen him and them almost everyday since he has had custody of them, I see no such bullshit. He gives those kids everything they need, food, beds and a fucking roof. If it wasn't for him, they would be seperated and in foster homes. He gives them discipline, something jennifer never gave them. He gives them food earned from his own pocket from working, something jennifer never did. So all of you take your lazy ass welfae collecting pieces of shitd

Terry Sloan October 15, 2012 at 03:36 PM
That's what you think.
Terry Sloan October 15, 2012 at 03:46 PM
I have known Jen since oh before her first beautiful child Melonnie was born. This is just so sad.I really believe that she was very troubled.Now she is with all those babies that did not have a chance.What was she thinking,I think when you lie so much, you start believing your own lies.That being said, where is Gary,oh I MET HIM,VERY SHADY, he said his phone did not dial 911.That is why JEN DID NOT HAVE A CHANCE.
Terry Sloan October 15, 2012 at 03:48 PM
I would like to know if this case is still under investigation?
Terry Sloan October 15, 2012 at 03:50 PM
I hope and pray that it does not get swept under the rug. Jen was to young and what about no mention to the baby.

Lmfao ur funny Jennifer didn't.pay tent the state dis now I pay the rent loser and I had a 1 bedroom apartment before this so ur just a loser that thinks he knows everything like everyone else dose but u don't know anything
afriend October 17, 2012 at 08:56 PM
By the way the.main reason I states in this house was for the kids so I didn't have to take them out of what they know Jennifer didn't have to ever pay for anything the star did and so did my child support I don't get nothing from. The state
afriend October 17, 2012 at 10:51 PM
I really don't understand why u all are coming at me like I did something wrong. It ashame what happened to Jennifer but it happened. I did what had to be done I stepped up and took responsibility for my kids because they are my kids, not because of things u people think I would get but it wasn't even about that it was and always will be about my kids. So why can't y'all just stop with the petty bullshit
Fred Norris October 18, 2012 at 12:37 AM
