Family of a Texas Tech Officer Who Lost His Life in 2017 Files a Lawsuit

The life for a family changed in 2017 when the head of the family, Floyd East Junior, a Texas Tech police offer, got killed. The family of the Texas Tech Officer who lost his life in 2017 files a lawsuit.

More On the Case

The victim was on duty on the night of October 9, 2017, when he was attacked and murdered by Hollis Alvin Daniels, 19, who was arrested by the police the next day. Daniels confessed to the crime and was held on a bond worth $5,000,000.

The officer had been working with the Texas Tech Police Department since 2014 and was known for being professional and honest.

What Really Happened

According to the arrest warrant issued by the authorities, Daniels was arrested by the police for possession of an illegal substance. He was taken to the Texas Tech Police where he shot the officer in the briefing room and fled the place.

A .45 caliber casing was found from the room and the officer’s body camera was missing. The police were able to locate the culprit and recovered a .45 caliber pistol and the missing camera from him.

Daniels accepted his mistake and confessed to the crime. He was charged with Capital Murder.

What The Case Says

The wife of the victim filed a lawsuit for $1 million or more. According to the lawsuit, Daniels acted with ‘disregard towards human life.’ He is currently in the Lubbock County Detention Center and has pending charges.

Since the culprit has already confessed, it may not be very difficult for the lawyers to get the rightful compensation. However, how much the court grants depends on a number of factors including your attorney’s skills and experience.

This is why it is important that you work with an experienced attorney if you or someone close to you has been involved in a similar situation.
