HeadlineSep 08, 2023

In other news from Georgia, the family of 24-year-old Shawndre Delmore is demanding justice for his death after being imprisoned at the Fulton County Jail. Authorities say he died at a hospital Sunday, three days after being found unresponsive in his cell. He is the 10th person to die in custody of the notorious Fulton County Jail this year. His mother spoke at a news conference Thursday.

Natasha Holoman: “I wasn’t expecting to see my son in the condition that he was in when I came out here. I thought I would be able to take my son with me back home, but that didn’t happen. And I want answers. I want to know what happened to my son.”
