The family of an Army veteran is searching for answers, more than a year after his death in a jail cell in Pennsylvania. It’s been 14 months of sorrow and pain. “It’s devastating, my family is devastated,” said Dwayne Palmer. But after all this time he is no closer to knowing what happened to his brother Everett. “You vacillate between depression, anger, for the quest and thirst for information,” said Dwayne. 41-year-old Everett Palmer was a Queens-born father of two.
On April 7, 2018, he presented himself to police in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on a warrant for a past drunk driving case. They arrested him on the spot, but after two days in jail he died in custody. ABC7NY video
