she did not die of natural causes
18 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

On October 10, 2002, Graves' home caught fire after a faulty space heater burst into flames. Fire fighters found her unconscious in a bedroom of her home and she was rushed to the Daniel Freeman Memorial Hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival from burns and smoke inhalation.

I found the show to be entertaining, but to copy cat, this was about the same time as Pam Grier - with her tough black chick movies and the other black exploitation flicks of the day, even being a pioneering show, it still was a racist show. I liked Angie Dickinson's "Police Women" much better, and I'm a black American.
