Lawler Family Doubts Official Cause Of Death Finding In Brian Christopher Case

This summer, the Lawler family hired civil rights lawyer, Jeff Rosenblum, to investigate the official cause of Christopher’s death. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation opened an investigation into the case which is ongoing.

Jerry Lawler expressed his doubts to Local Memphis media in August that his son committed suicide.

“It just doesn’t pass the smell test,” Lawler said. “We’ve received literally countless calls, text messages from people, actual eyewitnesses, that were in the jail and saw things that happened on the actual day that Brian died that now has opened up a new can of worms,” he continued. “It just doesn’t seem like it was suicide.”
