Nation IN BRIEF : WISCONSIN : Mother of Slaying Victim Files Lawsuit
A Milwaukee woman whose son was slain after police questioned but did not arrest Jeffrey L. Dahmer sued the city for $3 million, alleging that the officers were discriminatory and failed to stop a killing spree. Catherine Lacy filed a lawsuit alleging that her 23-year-old son was killed by Dahmer on or about July 14 and that police could have prevented the slaying. Three Milwaukee officers were suspended for failing to intervene when a bleeding Laotian boy was found stumbling outside Dahmer’s apartment on May 27. Lacy’s suit alleges that officers did not thoroughly investigate that incident because the victim was Laotian.
