MEMPHIS, Tenn. –– Nationally renowned civil rights and personal injury attorney Ben Crump will hold a news conference to demand transparency and the police video release in the death of Courtney Ross, a 19-year-old man who mysteriously died after being taken into custody by the Memphis Police Department.
On Friday, August 11, a local property owner made a call to the police about Ross going through boxes that may have contained poison. Other nearby residents made calls about Ross looking into cars and going through mailboxes. Potentially suffering from a mental health crisis, Ross ran from police when they arrived on scene. When officers apprehended him, they placed him in the back of the squad car. After noticing he was short of breath, they called for an ambulance which transported him to a local hospital where he would later die.
