Pepper's parents Sue for son's death
20 million dollars – that’s what the parents of the Washington County Tennessee inmate who died last April 29th are suing the county, Sheriff Ed Graybeal and six correction officers for. The lawsuite filed July 6th alleges Stewart Peppers was beaten, tased and chemically sprayed after shouting obscenities at jail personnel. The plaintiffs are asking for one million dollars for loss consortium, in addition to the 20 million in compensatory damages. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is currently investigating what led up to Peppers death, as well as the death of another former inmate, Charles Frederick Young III, who died in the same week.
