Jennings jail suicide victim in court this week

The family of a man who tried to hang himself in the Jennings jail — and later died from his injuries — was in US District Court of St. Louis this week for a pretrial conference.

JeJuan Brison, 26, was found unresponsive in his jail cell by officers on Oct. 4, 2014; reported attempts to revive him were unsuccessful.

His mother, plaintiff Christina Brooks, filed suit in state court against the City of Jennings, the Jennings Detention Center, Jennings Department of Corrections official Eugene Neal, and corrections officers Rick Crim, Demetrius Staples, Aykan Acikgoz, Kellye Still, Kyle Bashaw, Yvette Harris, and Kevin Stevener (the Jennings defendants); the City of St. Louis, the St. Louis Justice Center, St. Louis Corrections Commissioner Dale Glass, and corrections officers Joshua Hill, Carl Myers, Lynn Page, and Jermanda Adams (the St. Louis defendants); and St. Louis County police officer Kent Menning.

She asserts claims of wrongful death and civil rights violations.

Brison had been arrested on a domestic violence charge in the City of St. Louis, then transferred to the jail in Jennings for a shoplifting charge.

Records show that about 40 minutes later, a guard saw Brison try to hang himself with bed sheets.

His family contended at the time he was not suicidal.

The case is before Judge Ronnie White.
