14 Year-Old Was Likely Beaten to Death

Dec 29, 2006

Martin Lee Anderson, 14, died one day after he was beaten and dragged by 9 guards while in the custody of a juvenile boot camp. The medical examiner initially ruled that Martin died of natural causes, but after his parents watched a surveillance tape of the beating, they ordered the body exhumed and asked for a second autopsy, which negated the previous finding.

How absolutely horrible. It sounds to me like there was a coverup in the works. I hope that if that is the case they come down HARD on those covering up. That can't be tolerated.

This case had been in the news back in the spring, Mighty. The parents at first believed the official story of their son's death...that he died of natural causes. There should be some links to the original stories at the source.

For sure, though, if I hadn't read that the boy was only 14, I'd never have believed it from the photo of him.

:shock:
