Who was Miriam Carey? Woman driver may have suffered from mental illness

Authorities are investigating why a 34-year-old Connecticut woman rammed barricades and led police on a chase near the U.S. Capitol that ended in her death.

We now know that the driver's one-year-old daughter, who was with her in the car is now in the custody of Washington's child and family services agency, and is currently staying with a foster family.

Deborah Feyerick is OutFront with more.

    Didn't authorities find prescription medication for bipolar and schizophrenia in her apartment ? Also didn't her boyfriend report that she was acting delusional, saying Obama was spying on her and locking down her town? She is evidently a nut and it's rystal clear that her trying to get into The White House meant she intended to do something to Obama. Now her family is saying she had mental issues in the past but she was treated by a DR and was being weaned off the medication. I personally think the boyfriend's story is more reliable. SO UNFORTUNATE!!!
