Crump and the family will hold a Friday news conference in Memphis
MEMPHIS, Tenn. –– Nationally renowned civil rights and personal injury attorney Ben Crump has been retained by the family of Deion Byrd, a 25-year-old man who was stabbed to death by another inmate. Deion was stabbed in a holding cell after he had a court appearance at 201 Poplar, the men’s jail in Memphis.
Attorney Crump released the following statement:
“Deion Byrd’s family and countless others have come to learn that their loved ones are anything but safe at 201 Poplar. Being in jail is not a death sentence, but at 201 Poplar, nobody’s life is guaranteed. Drastic and immediate changes must be made so that nobody else’s son has to die unjustly, like so many there have.”
