Family: No Accountability for Man Who Died in Police Custody

Posted: 09/14/2017 10:29:00 -04:00 Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP)- Attorneys for the family of a Baltimore man whose death in police custody touched off unrest say they are "devastated" no one is being held accountable for his death.

Billy and Hassan Murphy spoke to reporters Wednesday after the U.S. Justice Department announced it would not bring federal civil rights charges against six officers.

Still, Hassan Murphy says he believes the attorneys, who were holdovers from President Barack Obama's administration, were "frank and forthright" in their probe into the death of Freddie Gray.

Billy Murphy says as the family's attorney he is privy to documents that will illustrate how some in the police department obstructed the investigation.

Gray's death after his neck was broken in the back of a police van in 2015 touched off violent unrest in the city.

    New Waterfront Hotel Breaks Ground in O.C., Part 2

    The location of a new waterfront hotel that recently broke ground in Ocean City is raising some eyebrows with neighbors in the downtown area.

    The Cambria Hotel is being built in the vacant lot that sits just north of the Route 50 drawbridge, meaning it will be one of the first things drivers see headed into town.

    Brian Plimack, who lives just behind the development, said the hotel is too much of a drastic change to the town's skyline.
