Arthur Partee (1578)



4/12/2003: Partee's mother went to police looking for help getting her son hospitalized. He was acting strangely. They searched for outstanding warrants, found one, and went to collect him. Partee was killed -- apparently strangled -- during the attempted arrest. One of the officers told the mother he was "playing possum." Legal action reached the Sixth Circuit. Partee's death, with Terrence Shurn's, caused community unrest. http://www.heraldpalladium.com/localnews/state-police-investigate-death-of-man-during-arrest/article_f51d79d6-1969-5fc7-b449-efa8c21be0ff.html
