Cops dismiss 'false alarm,' overlook man dying in freezer6/19/2012
On Sunday night, Tennessee's Metropolitan Nashville Police Department was alerted that a security alarm had gone off at the Germantown Café East, triggered from inside the restaurant's freezer. The officers went to the scene, found the restaurant's doors closed and the lights off, and dismissed it as a false alarm. They were wrong. On Monday morning, the body of café co-owner Jay Luther was discovered inside the freezer. Luther, 47, had reportedly stopped into the restaurant to check the food supply following a Friday night power outage. He somehow became trapped inside and did his best to alert authorities (his cellphone was later found at his home). Police Chief Steve Anderson has launched an internal investigation.
Should the officers face disciplinary action?
