ST. LOUIS – The parents of a St. Louis police officer who allegedly was killed by another officer during what authorities have described as a deadly game with a revolver have hired a legal team.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that attorney Scott Rosenblum says the team will look into “all avenues,” which potentially includes civil litigation. He says the family of 24-year-old Katlyn Alix has a “substantial amount of unanswered questions” about her death, given her police and military training. Alix served in the Army before joining the city police department.
Twenty-nine year-old Nathaniel Hendren is charged with involuntary manslaughter in Alix’s death last week at an apartment. He and another officer were on-duty at the time, while Alix wasn’t working. Hendren’s attorney says Alix’s death was a “tragic accident.”
