Judiciary Committee advances bill requiring CT police to notify family within 24 hours of death

A bill inspired by the death of Lauren Smith-Fields in Bridgeport has advanced to the full State House.
The Judiciary Committee overwhelmingly voted for the bill requiring police to notify the family within 24 hours of a death.
In Lauren Smith-Fields' case, she died on Dec. 12, but it wasn't until the next day that her family found a note on her apartment door to call the landlord.
The family says they didn't get confirmation of Smith-Fields death until they reached out to Bridgeport police.
