Judge dismisses wrongful death case in Illinois
A wrongful death case was recently thrown out due to the statute of limitations in the case. The case was filed by the parents of a 22-year-old that was found dead in her boyfriend’s home in 2005.
Her death was labeled a murder-suicide case by police officials, but her parents have filed a wrongful death suit against the estate of her boyfriend that shot her and the man who gave him a gun.
The family is claiming that the man who gave the gun to the boyfriend,negligently entrusted the weapon with a person that was suffering from depression. Neither of the defendants have been served since the suit was filed in 2007.
Our thoughts are with the friends and family of the victim.
