Parents of a man who died in the Christian County jail are suing the county. And they’re suing officials in Ozark and Taney Counties, too.
Linda and Lamar Davidson claim a jailer in Christian County did not get medical treatment as quickly as he should have gotten it when the parents found their son was ill during a visit. He died about four hours later.
Their son, Mickey, had been held in the Taney County jail until he reportedly was moved to the Ozark County jail because of overcrowding in Taney County, and then was shifted to Christian County because of a charge filed against him there.
