On the night of July 4, 2019, Jared Lakey was sadistically tortured with a taser. Over the period of 9 minutes, the Wilson Police Department officers Joshua Taylor and Brandon Dingman tased him 53 times, and then Carter County deputy David Duggan choked the life out of him as if to ensure he doesn’t get out alive.
Throughout the ordeal, Jared Lakey was naked and unarmed. Autopsy toxicology reports confirmed that he was not under the influence of any illegal drugs.
After 10 months long investigation during which time the cops remained on duty, Taylor and Dingman were arrested and charged with second-degree murder. There is no more protect and serve. Jared had a health condition that would cause him to become confused and disoriented his family claims. They could have EASILY cuffed him themselves. Instead they chose to torture a man and then blatantly lie that he was combative pulling out the leads of the taser. They deserve life in prison with ZERO chance of parole!!
