See http://wrongfuldeathoflarryneal.com. On August 1, 2003, mentally ill heart patient, Larry M. Neal, died while incarcerated in Shelby County Jail, Memphis, Tennessee. During the 18 days of Larry Neal's fatal incarceration, his family and social worker searched for him as a missing person, while the jail repeatedly denied having Larry Neal under arrest. In 2003, Shelby County Jail was under the jurisdiction of the United States Justice Department, following suit by the United States of America due to violations of inmates' civil rights. To date, all requests by Larry Neal's family for official reports and an investigation regarding his death have been denied or ignored. The undersigned petitioners ask that Larry Neal's death be thoroughly investigated by the United States Justice Department and that Larry's family be given full disclosure of the results of the investigation on a regular basis, with a final report upon close of investigation. We ask that the Justice Department also investigate the possibility of a conspiracy between Larry Neals family's attorneys and Shelby County Government to deny the family's right to due process of law following Larrys alleged wrongful death. The undersigned petitioners feel strongly that a mentally ill citizen's death deserves at least the same investigative efforts and call to justice as the abuse and deaths of America's dogs.

    • Let the abusers be the users. Let it happen to someone in their own family. Prison Officials and Guards will someday pay for their cruelty.

    • This is shameful, and I wish I could be shocked by it. But unfortunately, this is situation normal in the so-called "Land of the Free."
