"I wanna know who is being held accountable?" she asked.
On Tuesday, Public Safety Director Frank Straub told reporters a vial of Bisard's blood had been moved from a refrigerated location to a non-refrigerated location back in November. Mills said it would be difficult to believe it was a simple mistake.
"I would love to have somebody prove to me that it was just an error. I would love for that, but I can't feel that way, not with everything that has happened."
The police chief resigned and three others were put on paid administrative leave. Mills said none of those actions are good enough, though.
"I want to see justice. I want to know that you've done something, you're going to be reprimanded for it," she said. "I wanna know who's being held accountable for anything and everything that has gone wrong in this case."
Attorney's representing Mills and Weekly demanded the city settle immediately. Mills said she and Weekly have not received a dime from the City since the crash.
"Not even an 'I'm sorry.' Nothing," said Mills.
She said the whole ordeal has led her to distrust IMPD police officers. Now, when she sees a metro police cruiser, she flashes her middle finger, something she calls the "New Jersey salute."
Weekly's attorney, Bruce Kehoe, said he has sent the city's legal representation letters requesting a sit down discussion on four occasions since the crash, but has always been declined.
"We tried to impose a deadline late last September, and the answer was 'Well, we're just not in the position to do that right now.'"
Kehoe said he is drafting another letter in light of the recent developments.
