Family Suspects Coverup in Jailhouse Death of Son whose Throat was Removed

A Delaware man who traveled to Pennsylvania last year to resolve an outstanding warrant for a DUI ended up dead in jail with many unanswered questions after his throat was inexplicably removed during the autopsy.

“Makes no sense, unless you’re trying to maybe avoid people knowing how he died; which was maybe by asphyxiation,” attorney Marlon Kirton of Manhattan, who is representing the man’s family, told Spectrum News.

Everett Palmer Jr., 41, died in the York County Jail on April 9, 2018 after arriving in Pennsylvania two days earlier.

The York County Coroner initially said Palmer “became agitated and began hitting his head against his cell door” before determining the cause of death to be from “complications following an excited state, associated with methamphetamine toxicity, during physical restraint.”

His mother, Rose Palmer, does not believe that.

“My son was a perfectly healthy young man and my son is not going to bang his head on a cell,” Rose Palmer told Spectrum News.

Also, a second autopsy conducted by a doctor hired by the family determined Palmer died of a homicide, according to the York Daily Record.

Adding to the mystery is the fact that Palmer’s body was badly bruised and missing its brain, heart and throat when it was turned over to his family.

Kirton, the family’s attorney, said it is common to remove the heart and brain during an autopsy but not the throat, which is why he suspects Palmer was choked to death.

The family are also skeptical of the coroner’s finding of “methamphetamine toxicity” because they say that would have meant he was using the drug inside the jail.

The family is considering suing but it is still waiting for the investigation to be completed, which so far has lasted longer than a year. The family launched a Facebook page titled Justice4Everett to provide updates in the case.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
