They claim that when his body was returned to them, his throat, heart and brain were missing.
The family of a US Army veteran who died last year in Pennsylvania police custody are claiming he was murdered, according to published reports.
The last time relatives of Queens-born Everett Palmer Jr., 41, heard from him was in April 2018, when he said he was going to Pennsylvania to resolve an outstanding DUI warrant from two years earlier, the family said.
Palmer, a dad of two who lived in Delaware, was booked into a single cell at the York County Prison on April 7, 2018.
Two days later, he was dead.
“The most frustrating part is my son being murdered and not having any answers to how he was murdered,” Rose Palmer, Everett’s mother, said during a Tuesday press conference, according to CBS News.
“Since April 9, I have not had a good night sleep since I think about my child and the possible scenarios. It is torture. He didn’t deserve this,” she said. “He went there to check on his license and he never made it out.”
