Anderson Parents Frustrated at Delays

November 17th, 2006 by Mike Vasilinda

It has been nearly 11 months since 14 year old Martin Lee Anderson died in the Bay County Boot Camp. Anderson died after guards forced ammonia tablets up his nose and held his mouth. It took nearly six months to find the true cause of death, and a special prosecutor has been investigating since early summer. Ben Crump, the parent’s attorney, says the parents are frustrated.

“We will pray that the new administration won’t keep this matter going and stay the course like this DJJ administration has done, and the prosecutor will be told to end this investigation and arrest the people who killed Martin Lee Anderson. “

Martin Lee Anderson died within hours of arriving at the boot camp last January sixth. The state has since closed all existing boot camps.
