Wrongful death civil lawsuit settled

By  | 

LAMAR COUNTY, TX-- Attorneys have settled the wrongful death civil lawsuit brought by the mother of Brandon McClelland.

The District Clerk says it was a sealed and confidential settlement.

McClelland's body was found on a Lamar County road in 2008.

The District Clerk says McClelland's mother Jaqueline, had filed a civil lawsuit against Wesco Trucking and truck driver Garry Clark. She later amended her petition and added Ryan Crostley and Shannon Finley.

The men were originally charged in Mclelland's death, but when new evidence surfaced in 2009, the charges were dropped.

Authorities say Clark claimed he might have accidentally run over McClelland.
