Protesters rally outside Glasgow Police Department after suspect dies in custody
GLASGOW, Ky.- A family is now seeking answers after a man died in police custody in Glasgow.
On Thursday, 10 people dressed in red were protesting outside the Glasgow Police Department.
The rally was organized by a daughter of 35-year-old Jeremy Marr, who died after police said he unlawfully entered a residence on Cleveland Ave. last Tuesday.
A video posted to social media over the last two days, shows three police officers on the ground subduing an individual who purportedly is Marr. One of the officers is seen kneeing the person on the ground in what appears to be the individual’s lower body.
Kentucky State Police is now handling the investigation into Marr’s death.
Marr’s daughter, Destiny, said she’s seeking justice.
“I didn’t know this march was going to be this big. I’m beyond blessed. I have a chance to get my dad the justice he deserves,” Destiny said.
Marr’s body was sent for an autopsy. The results have yet to come back.
Kentucky State Police officials are seeking information from the public. If you have any information about this case, you’re asked to contact Post 3 in Bowling Green.
