ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – So far no one from James Boyd’s family has been located, but the city may still face a lawsuit in his death as it has for many other shootings.
Monday, retired APD officer John Walck filed notice he intends to sue for wrongful death in the Boyd case.
Walck calls APD a “malicious department” and says when he was a cop he was defused violent situations with his night stick.
“The deal is I’m concerned they’re going around killing people without what we used to have police issued night sticks,” Walck said.
An attorney KRQE News 13 talked to said if no family is found, a judge could appoint a representative for Boyd in a wrongful death lawsuit.
Any damages would end up going to the state as unclaimed property.
