Kevin Green has filed papers in Brooklyn Federal Court asking for the release of cell phone and text messages from his son’s devices. He is also asking for all information related to devices used by his son’s former wife, Florinda Evans and her mother.
The US army has not been helpful. They initially ruled Lashawn’s death to be a suicide and then changed it to homicide six months afterward. Kevin Green now wants to know exactly how his son died while serving in the United States military.
“I made my son a promise that I would honor him and fight till I know what happened,” the grieving father said.
Jeffrey Schwartz, Mr. Green’s attorney said: “We cannot think of any good reason why the Army has not provided the father of one of their soldiers with information about a death they ruled a homicide.”
Evans was found dead in his barracks with a rifle next to his body and a blanket over his head. It is not clear whether his former wife had anything to do with the homicide.
