Lubbock County Commissioner Jason Corley Accused of Harassment
Lubbock’s Chief Medical Examiner, Dr. Sam Andrews, is accusing County Commissioner Jason Corley of harassment and official oppression. KAMC News says that’s in a letter written by Andrews on January 30th and sent to Lubbock County Judge Curtis Parish.
The letter may be referring to allegations Corley has made in the past that Dr. Andrews unnecessarily and without consent harvested the organs of a child who died from meningitis.
But the letter claims that Commissioner Corley’s “harassment” has been ongoing. Dr. Andrews’ letter accuses Corley of making defamatory statements meant to undermine him and the Medical Examiner’s Office.
Corley is calling the letter “laughable” and claims he has only met with Dr. Andrews once since he took office. But Corley does admit that he believes the company Dr. Andrews is associated with, NAAG Pathology Labs, is not following best practices in its operation at the Medical Examiner’s Office.
Earlier in February, it was revealed that the Texas Rangers will be investigating the Medical Examiner’s Office due to complaints and allegations received by the Lubbock District Attorney’s Office.
The specifics of the allegations have not been made public. Lubbock County Judge Curtis Parish has so far refused to comment on the letter or the aspects of an ongoing investigation.
