The family of Lashawn Thompson, 35, alleged to have been “eaten alive by insects and bed bugs,” is suing after he was found dead in Fulton County Jail, in Atlanta, Georgia, on Sept. 13, 2022, BuzzFeed News reported. A representative for the family says the man died in “a filthy jail cell” in a psychiatric wing of the jail after being arrested for misdemeanor simple battery on June 12, 2022. Three months later, he was found unresponsive in his cell covered in “severe bed bug infestation,” according to records. The cell was allegedly so filthy that a worker who entered it wore a hazmat suit, the Washington Post reported. One of the detention officers allegedly refused to administer CPR because of the insects, and in her words, she “freaked out.” BuzzFeed posted horrific photos of the filthy cell.
