Earlier this month, Glenn Foster died in police custody and now there is a huge problem. According to Fosters’ attorney Ben Crump, Foster did not die from natural causes and says there is a possibility he was strangled to death.
“Glenn Foster Jr.’s death, while in the Pickens County Sheriff’s custody and care, was not from natural causes as the independent autopsy suggests there was some evidence of neck compressions and strangulation,” Crump said in his release. “As we continue to investigate the case, we are learning that Mr. Foster’s death in Pickens County appears to be part of a disturbing trend of Black men dying while in the custody of the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office.”
Foster was arrested for driving twice the speed limit through a small Alabama town. There is rumors that Foster beat up another inmate for stealing socks, then was ordered by a judge for a mental evaluation before he died in custody.
Foster had been diagnosed with mental problems according to his family.
According to the report, Foster was arrested with no problem, he was handcuffed, and taken to the Pickens County Jail in Carrollton on charges of reckless endangerment, attempting to elude and resisting arrest, police said. The problem is he is dead right now, and there is no explanation. I have a feeling we will be hearing about this case a lot more.
