The family of Dana Fletcher, the man shot and killed by Madison police on Oct. 27, has requested Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall review the case "to preserve the semblance of fairness in the legal system in Alabama."
The letter sent by the family to Marshall is addressed Nov. 25. On that same day, the city of Madison said an Incident Review Board determined the Madison Police Department officers involved in the shooting death of Fletcher “acted according to department policies and procedures.” Read about this here
The family also questioned a conflict of interest between Madison Mayor Paul Finley and the Sheriff's Office Investigator on the case who share a last name. The sheriff's office said the two are not related.
Marshall's Office said it had not recieved the letter as of Tuesday afternoon. The family told WAAY 31 it was mailed and arrived Tuesday morning.
The Attorney General's Office said not all police shootings are reviewed by it's office. It's unclear if the Marhsall will review the findings.
The findings were given to Madison City Police Chief David Jernigan, who then returned all officers involved in the incident to full duty with no restrictions.
Earlier this month, the Madison County District Attorney’s Office also ruled the shooting as justified.
