Woman who Accused 2 Cops of Rape Dies after Falling from Sheriff’s Moving SUV

An Arizona woman who accused a male cop of raping her and a female deputy of sodomizing her with an unknown object while in custody has died after falling out of a moving sheriff’s vehicle Thursday.

Jorden Marie Simms was said to have slipped out of her handcuffs, belly chain and ankle restraints before opening the rear door to the Ford Explorer which did not have the childproof lock in place. She was pronounced dead from head injuries at a Tucson hospital.

Three days prior to her death, the Arizona Department of Public Safety examined her for signs of sexual assault using a rape kit after she accused Safford police officer Jeremiah French of raping her while in custody. He has been placed on paid administrative leave, according to the Eastern Arizona Courier.

Simms also accused a female Graham County sheriff’s deputy of sodomizing her with an unknown object, according to her family who posted the following on Facebook.

My niece, Jorden Marie is expected to take her last breath tonight. A beautiful mother, daughter, sister and niece gone too soon. Jorden has battled addiction for several years and has paid dearly for her addiction. She was arrested Saturday, December 21st by Graham County Sheriff’s Department. That first day she reported to her jailers that she had been raped by deputy Jeremiah French. She was taken to Sierra Vista for a rape test (which has since returned positive). Upon her return to the detention center she was searched by a female officer that sodimized her with an unknown object. She was refused medical treatment for whatever reason. For the next several days she pleaded with her mom to get her out of there. She was afraid. She knew something bad was going to happen. Her mom was trying but couldn’t make it happen fast enough. On Thursday, December 26th my sister arrived for her scheduled visit with Jorden and was met by 3 deputies informing her that Jorden was not there and they could not disclose her whereabouts. As the day progressed no phone call ever came from Jorden.

Around 7pm that evening, my sister received a call that her daughter had been involved in an incident and was being flown to Banner University in Tucson. She arrived at the hospital to find her sweet baby girl broken, mangled and brain dead. The story we have gotten is that she had been transported to Sierra Vista for psychiatric analysis and upon her return to Safford, slipped her hand cuffs and jumped from the moving transport vehicle.

We have so many questions!!!

The Graham County Sheriff’s Office has issued a timeline of events leading up to her death.

The sheriffs’ office says deputies transported Simms to the Cochise County Advocacy Center following her accusation against the female deputy which is supposed to specialize in examining victims of sexual assault. But they did not have the necessary equipment to test her, so they transported her to Mt. Graham Regional Hospital instead which was when she fell out of the vehicle. Her family is skeptical of the sheriff narrative.

Simms was arrested on December 21 on a warrant out of Yavapai County. Two days later, she was transported to be tested for signs of rape. Her family says on Facebook that the test came back positive but Arizona state police have not confirmed that.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.

  1. This is a horrific story. I do not believe that young girl was able to free herself not only from her cuffs, but body restraints as well. She came forward with her allegations… therefore it makes sense she was wanting to go to get a medical exam. And time away from custody where she knew she was not safe.Jeremiah French. I will remember that name. Clearly…there is fowl play at the root of this story. And this young lady was brave…believe it, this was not the first incident t of sexual assault nor the last. However we do not hear of these sickening crimes committed by the egotistical and malignant narcissistic psychopaths within law enforcement… victims are terrified. For good reason. This is also not the first time a person in custody died under odd and doubtful circumstances. The truth is easily Proven through her examination. But we of course will not hear it. it is not just the police that are criminals…but those that took part in the medical exam. They know the truth and will not say a word. … And I am disgusted people are not outraged over this. Where is support of the community? I know this…that young lady was considered a person of zero significance. Considered no threat…a young girl with a drug addiction vs. those entrusted to protect and serve. …Had she been the daughter of a wealthy businessman …someone like Mr Click…this would be investigated further…the truth would be told and there would be justice. I have lived in Tucson for 50 years. I have witnessed on many occasions over zealous uniformed ego maniacs over stepping their authority. Handling the weak and broken roughly and without any sense of humanity. in general I do not trust those within our police departments. Most are mentally unhealthy and have serious psychological problems. Alcoholism is common as well as domestic violence. But we wont hear any of this. It is covered up. And I could go on…and shock the reader with what I have seen regarding officers. However I will not go further. I may find myself in a trunk and taken to the desert…where I of course die of dehydration… Horrific. And more cowards then heros among men. that is the sad truth.
