A TENNESSEE MAN WAS KILLED WHILE IN POLICE CUSTODY MARCH 25, 2019: ITS BEING REPORTED THAT A OFFICER SMOTHERED HIM TO DEATH WHILE HE WAS IN HANDCUFFS.
Dear Tory Lowe
On March 25th a gentleman by the name of Sterling Higgins was reported deceased in the Obion County Jail .Mr Higgins was taken to jail for disturbing the peace at a gas station. Mr Higgins was being disruptive towards officers and the jail staff. Mr. Higgins was in handcuffs when an officer laid on top of him and smothered him. We have heard many different stories but this is the one that the sheriff department released. The community of Union City Tennessee is in an uproar this young man’s death is not justifiable.
👑: Another in custody police involved death. It’s almost to the point where the people in the community are running out of patience with this kind of behavior. Please share and keep this family in your prayers.🙏🏾
