Jerry Lawler Comments On Brian Christopher’s Funeral
“This is gotta be one of the toughest days of my life and if I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a thousand times,” Lawler said. “They say the toughest thing for anybody to do is have to bury a child and that’s what we’re going through today.”
“My fiance Lauren and I are standing next to the casket and I keep looking down almost expecting Brian to sit up and start laughing,” Lawler continued. “It’s just tough.”
Brian’s friends spoke of remembering their friend as funny, fun, and as having a big heart. They also remembered him as willing to go out of his way to make someone laugh. Other friends say he was always quick to help a friend in need.
Investigation Into Brian Christopher’s Death
There is currently an active investigation into the circumstances surrounding Brian Christopher’s death. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has asked family not to comment publicly on the ongoing case.
A lawyer for the family has made a public comment that they are hoping to receive camera footage from within the jail to gain a better understanding of how he was being housed.
The Sherrif’s department has stated Brian was being housed in a cell by himself but was not in solitary confinement.
Jerry Lawler files wrongful death suit in son Brian’s death, alleges he hung from cell bolt
Jerry Lawler has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Hardeman County, Hardeman County Sheriff John Doolen and others for their alleged failure to protect his son and former WWE star Brian Lawler, Jerry Lawler’s attorneys announced Monday.
Brian Lawler, who died a few year ago, was found hanging in an isolated cell in the Hardeman County Jail. His father has questioned whether the death was, in fact, a suicide.
Jerry Lawler is seeking $3 million in compensatory damages. He is also seeking punitive damages in an amount to be determined by the jury for what the firm of Rosenblum and Reisman called “numerous failures of the county and its employees that resulted in the wrongful death of his son.”
Lawyer Jeffrey Rosenblum said during a press conference Monday afternoon that they are seeking a court order requiring Doolen to “immediately make changes” at the jail so no more suicides in confinement can occur.
Jerry Lawler said at the press conference that Doolen had promised him he would “personally keep an eye out” for Brian Lawler. He said he took a picture of Brian after he was taken to Regional One Medical Center and texted it to Doolen.
“And I said, ‘Remember when you told me that Brian would be safe? I believed you,’” Jerry Lawler said.
Doolen responded “I am sorry for your loss,” according to Lawler.
Requests for comment sent to Doolen and Hardeman County were not immediately returned Monday afternoon.
