No Throat, No Heart, No Brain: No Answers for Queens Family After Vet Dies in PA Jail

By Rayvin Bleu
PUBLISHED 9:58 PM ET Jun. 03, 2019

Once a month, Rose and Dwayne Palmer face congregants at the Maranatha Baptist Church in Queens, updating them about the case of their son and brother, Everett Palmer, Jr., who died under mysterious circumstances in a Pennsylvania jail more than a year ago.

"We want answers. We want to understand what happened," Dwayne Palmer says.

Everett Palmer Jr. graduated from Martin Van Buren High School in Queens Village, served in the Army as a paratrooper and was the father of two boys. When he died, he was working as a personal trainer in Delaware.

"My son was not a troublemaker, not at all, he was a very gentle, kind man. So, it's nothing that he did in that prison that would warrant his death. He even looked maybe intimidating to some people, but he wasn't, he was the sweetest young man," Rose Palmer says.

Palmer went to Pennsylvania on April 7, 2018 to resolve an outstanding warrant for a DUI charge. Two days later, his family received a shocking phone call: They were told Palmer had been arrested and later died in the York County Jail.

Initially, the county coroner said Palmer "became agitated and began hitting his head against his cell door."

"My son was a perfectly healthy young man and my son is not going to bang his head on a cell," Rose Palmer says.

The coroner eventually updated the cause of death as "complications following an excited state, associated with methamphetamine toxicity, during physical restraint."

The family hired a pathologist, who determined Palmer's death should be labeled a homicide.

Also troubling: When the family received Palmer's body, it was badly bruised, and his brain, heart, and throat were missing.

"When we reached out to find out what happened to his organs, they initially lied. They directed us back to our funeral director and told us that we need to confer with them because they probably took the organs," Dwayne Palmer says.

A family attorney says brains and hearts are sometimes removed for autopsies, but not a throat.

"Makes no sense, unless you're trying to maybe avoid people knowing how he died; which was maybe by asphyxiation," says the attorney, Marlon Kirton of Manhattan.

The family says it is also confused about the coroner's finding of "methamphetamine toxicity." They say that would have meant Palmer took the drug while he was in jail.

The York County coroner and district attorney declined to comment to NY1 about the family's questions or the case, saying state and local investigations are ongoing.

What the .... ? Looks like a coverup of something. And how did this young man get mixed up into something that deadly? Mistaken identity? Or something the family didnít know about?

I'd like to see the tox numbers. Was it so?

I've seen weird things in my day, including PCP freaks with (seemingly) superhuman strength. Show me the numbers.

It sounds fishy to me. If it's a cover-up it's a damn poor one with real stupid people doing it. I'd like to see what turns up.

I agree, something ain't adding up here.
