No Brain, No Throat, No Heart in Remains of Vet Killed In Police Custody




by G. Brown

Army Veteran Everett Palmer Jr. left his home in Delaware after calling his family in New York and telling them he was driving up to visit his sick mother.  He never made it.

In April of last year, Everett’s family was informed that he died while in police custody.  More than a year later, the Palmer family is still trying to get answers because when the 41-year-old remains were returned for burial, organs were missing.  CNN says, “Palmer’s body was returned to them, his throat, heart and brain were missing.”

The only explanation given to Everett’s family was that he was in York County Prison after being arrested by police. He was shot and killed by police after Everett allegedly “became agitated and started banging his head on the cell door“(USA TODAY) of his prison.    Those few facts of the case leave more questions than answers. The Palmer family hired a civil rights attorney who has enough information to determine, “This entire case smacks of a cover-up,”.

Once the story when public after the media got involved, the coroner’s office released a statement on Friday defending how they’re handling the case saying they’ve been in regular contact with the family and explained,  “there were never any missing organs“.  The organs are being retained for additional testing as part of the autopsy.  As for the cause of death, the coroner says, “complications following an excited state, associated with methamphetamine toxicity, during physical restraint.” Probable sickle red cell disorder was listed as a contributory factor.“(USA Today).  The manner of death officially remains undetermined meaning we know he died from gunshots by an officer, but what were all the circumstances leading to Everett’s behavior and death?

It’s an answer, but again more questions…where did Everett get the methamphetamine?… Is that what affected his “brain” and caused him to become agitated enough to bang his head on his cell door? Did someone else bang his head on the door?

And there are plenty of other questions still.  It’s reported that Everett went to settle an outstanding DUI warrant before he got on the road which is what led to his arrest, but why did he end up dead in a cell only two days after his arrest?

People following the case on Twitter agree with the family’s attorney that something isn’t adding up in this case…

The story has reawakened an urban legend that is now a full-fledged conspiracy theory of organ thieves. Everett’s story has also spawned the hashtag “#Justice4Everett”.
As all this turns into a modern-day media circus known as a viral storm, the Palmer family still stands at the eye of that storm asking the same question they’ve been asking for 14 months now–“What happened to Everett Palmer?”
What do you think actually happened to Everett? Will the truth ever come out? Or do you think this is part of some sort of cover-up?

    Mainstream media is not heavily covering this story. However when a black man is accused of committing a sex crime against a woman, especially a white woman, the tv news networks give that story wall to wall coverage. Not only are the Pennsylvania State Police covering up the Everett Palmer incident, the media is aiding and abetting the Pennsylvania State Police due to their lackluster reporting of this tragic incident. America hates us. White people hate us.

    Everett Palmer served in America’s military and America murdered him, stole his organs and covered up the incident. Black men and women please do all of us a favor, do not join the military! Quote from Laurence Fishburne from the movie Boyz in the hood, “Black man has no place in the white man’s army.”

    This is definitely a human rights violation. This is also a crime committed by the Pennsylvania State Police. This is even more proof that America is racist and America hates us. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Everett Palmer. This is one of the saddest stories I have ever heard.

    Pay attention to the fact that black politicians are staying silent about this heartbreaking disgusting incident. Next year most of the black politicians are going to reach out to you via television and the church and ask for your vote. Remember the fact that politicians like Kamala Harris, Barack Obama and the Congressional Black Caucus did nothing about the crime against Everett Palmer.

      Hi NBA You’re right, haven’t seen anywhere where Black elected officials are standing up and speaking on this case. People didn’t hesitate to speak up and condemn them when it happened. Even Trump took out full-page ads calling for them to be put to death!. As another comment from Daisy pointed out that there are plenty of people who had a hand in what happened to these men. From the police to prison guards, to the prosecutors and judges, to the media and private citizens…everybody had something to say when they believed these teens were guilty. Thankfully, DuVernay spoke loudly and truthfully in her series. P.S. This story should scare us all! Thanks NBA for sharing your thoughts.

    It’s no longer a conspiracy theory, it’s a fact; we are being hunted, killed and gutted for our organs. This is what sick white people do to animals when they go hunting. What is law enforcement and federal law enforcement doing with our organs? My guess is they’re selling them on the black market for thousands of dollars. As a black man in Amerikkka, I’m terrified!

    This spell cover-up all day long. They removed those organs so a coroner won’t ever get down to the real truth.

      @Weslin Hi Weslin You are coming to the same conclusion as many once they hear the facts of the case. The fact that the county coroner waited more than a year to even release a statement (only after NY1 broke the story) also adds to the shady handling of this case. Truth always out…the real story can only be hidden so long now that the world knows about Palmer. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts and comments.

        Hi Shawn J. Most people are thinking like you. It takes 14 months to finish one autopsy? That coroner must have bodies stacked to Mars! Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. Take care Shawn.
