Concerned Mother Says Police Indifferent to Detained Son’s Health Issues

Ashton Moody

A mother took to the media today to vent her frustration after she says her efforts to explain to investigating officers that her son, Ashton Moody, who they detained, pending an investigation, has acute health issues and needed to undergo lab tests today. Danna Bull visited News Five’s office on Coney Drive to tell us that the police detained her son in Lemonal Village on Monday for a burglary that happened at a house in the village during the passage of Hurricane Lisa. Bull told News Five that she found out that police had her son detained on Monday and know that he had to see the doctor today to get the tests done.  She went to the police to ask them to afford him the time to get the tests done while they investigate the incident. But she told us that she got the cold treatment and the officers who held her son in custody were indifferent to his medical condition, despite the fact that she showed them the medical papers.
