Nov 10 - Atatiana Jefferson's father dies
 

 

 https://www.cnn.com/2019/ .. ies/index.html

(CNN)Marquis A. Jefferson, the father of Atatiana Jefferson, died Saturday at age 59.

Marquis Jefferson suffered a cardiac arrest and was taken to a hospital in Dallas

on Friday night, family spokesman Bruce Carter said. His death comes less than

a month after his daughter was fatally shot by a police officer in her home in

Fort Worth, Texas. Atatiana Jefferson was his only child.
"He ultimately just succumbed to, I don't know, I can only say a broken heart,"

Carter said. "He just never recovered from the grieving process."

On October 18, a Dallas County judge granted Marquis Jefferson a temporary

restraining order, giving him full authority to make arrangements for his

daughter's funeral and burial.

"He was battling to be a part of her life to the end," Carter said. "I think it just got

the best of him."

The father had sought the restraining order so he could be included in the

arrangements but had a good relationship with his daughter's mother and

siblings, Carter told CNN last month.

Marquis Jefferson told reporters that his daughter, whom he called "Tay," was

"love." "And that smile? Lord have mercy," he said last month, "It could brighten

up any room."

In the early morning hours of October 12, Atatiana Jefferson, 28, was playing

video games with her nephew when two officers arrived at her home.

A concerned neighbor had put out a call to the non-emergency police number

after noticing the home's exterior doors were open at that late hour. As officers

walked around the house in the dark, Jefferson heard a noise in the backyard,

pulled out a gun from her purse and pointed it at the window, police said.

Former Fort Worth Officer Aaron Dean yelled "Put your hands up! Show me your

hands!" before he fired through the window, k*lling her, body camera footage

showed.

Neither of the officers had identified themselves as police.

Dean resigned from the force and has been charged with murder. An attorney

representing him previously declined to comment.

In the days following the shooting, the former officer declined to speak with

investigators, an October arrest warrant states, and his attorneys had told police

he'd provide a written statement at a later date.

In most police shootings, officers give an oral or written statement about what

happened for an internal investigation, either immediately after the shooting or

within 72 hours. But as Dean resigned from his job from the police department,

he also declined to provide a written statement, court documents showed.

After the shooting, the neighbor who asked for a wellness check told CNN

affiliate KTVT he felt "guilty' for calling the police because "had I not called the

Fort Worth Police Department, my neighbor would still be alive today."

Atatiana Jefferson, graduated from Louisiana's Xavier University in 2014 with a

degree in biology and worked in pharmaceutical equipment sales.

She had just moved back to the home to care for her ailing mother.

Yeah ok. He wasn't sticking to the script and he had to be removed so the family could forgo justice for the bag.

Rest In Peace

He made it clear he didn't want money he wanted justice for his daughter that he loved and maybe that can still happen even though he is gone now. Maybe he has family members that can continue to voice his concerns and opinions during the case.
