Written by Emily

VB Attorneys has been hired by the family of a 24-year-old man found dead at the Bexar County Adult Detention Center

Our firm has been hired by the family of Leon Causey, age 24. At approximately 8:44 a.m. on July 18, 2019, a Bexar County Sheriff’s deputy found Mr. Causey unresponsive in his cell. The officer was conducting face-to-face observation checks.

The sheriff’s office told the local media that deputies and jail medical staff began to perform life-saving procedures. They were unsuccessful in their attempts to revive him. Deputies had requested help from the San Antonio Fire Department emergency medical technicians. He was pronounced dead at 8:48 a.m.

Leon Causey’s death is 3rd high-profile incident at the Bexar County jail in 5 days

The Criminal Investigations Division, Internal Affairs, and the Public Integrity Unit of the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office are investigating Mr. Causey’s death. His death marks the third high-profile incident at the jail in the 5 days prior to July 18, 2019.

Mr. Causey’s family has hired our firm to investigate this incident.
