    http://thenewsjournal.net/details/8181/Lawsuit-filed-against-Sheriff's-Department,-deputy-over-man's-death-in-January#comments

    The Whitley County Sheriff’s Office and one of its deputies are named as defendants in a lawsuit claiming they are responsible for the death of an elderly man this past January.

    According to the civil complaint, filed in Whitley Circuit Court last Friday, the department and deputy William Harris caused the “premature and untimely death” of Williams Oaks Sr. in January by failing to respond to a 911 call reporting Oaks crawling across I-75 near the three-mile-marker on Jan. 3. Oaks was found dead by authorities six days later on Jan. 9 about 150 yards where he was spotted on the roadway by a passing motorist. Autopsy results reveal Oaks died of “exposure to the elements.”

    According to the lawsuit, filed by Williamsburg attorney Jane Butcher, Harris “personally accepted and took responsibility over” the call after it was given to him, via radio, by a Whitley County 911 dispatcher, but never went to check out the report.

    I'm just disgusted. One would think that getting a call about an elderly man crawling across a freeway might merit a little in-person investigation, especially considering how cold it was in January. How utterly awful, that poor man.
