The Wrongful Death of Larry Neal

The Secret Death of a Mentally Ill Heart Patient in a
Tennessee Jail and the Subsequent Cover-Up

 

What caused Shelby County, Tennessee Jail to ignore missing person reports for 18 days on inmate Larry Neal, while keeping this mentally ill heart patient incarcerated until his death on August 1, 2003?

Why did Shelby County Jail repeatedly and falsely report to Larry’s family and social worker during Larry’s period “missing” that neither Larry Neal nor any unidentified detainee meeting his description was incarcerated?

Immediately after Larry’s burial, why did The Cochran Firm contract with Larry’s mother, Hattie Neal, to sue Shelby County Jail for wrongful death, when the Memphis office of The Cochran Firm was in fact managed by Julian Bolton, a 20-year member of the Shelby County Commission, which is the entity that owns and operates the jail where Larry died?

Was it to protect Shelby County Government that The Cochran Firm merely held Larry’s wrongful death case on its shelves inactive for the next 10.5 months while the Tennessee statute of limitations on personal injury ran?

Why did The Cochran Firm write letters to Larry’s mother and sister, Mary Neal, after contracting with them and lie about a vigorous investigation and legal discovery that law firm was conducting regarding Larry’s wrongful death, when the law firm was actually doing nothing to represent them?

The law office located at 127 Peachtree Street in Atlanta, Georgia is widely advertised as being the Atlanta office of The Cochran Firm. Why did this law office deny being The Cochran Firm’s Atlanta office in Fulton County Superior Court when Larry’s family brought suit against The Cochran Firm and served the suit to that office? If that law office is not a Cochran Firm law office, why is it allowed to be advertised as such?

The Cochran Firm’s undisclosed conflict of interest, deliberate malpractice, and fraud of its clients effectively shielded Shelby County Jail from answering any Larry’s family’s questions regarding his incarceration and death.

This website seeks to chronicle the journey of Larry Neal’s family as they bring these injustices into the light of the public forum.

Larry’s secret incarceration and death in jail demonstrate plainly that many of America’s mentally ill citizens need hospitalization. Incarceration and homelessness must not continue to be our answer to mental illness.

      • Please contact me. Yes write to my son. He doesn’t have the mind to write to me. You might be able to get to him somehow. It’s devastating and detrimental to see him in a cage he doesn’t even recognize me. 8 years of Florida torture and abuse. Governor Rick Scott and Senator Marcos Rubio haven’t done anything to help my son. I have visited their office. I went to Tallahassee. Thanks
