On July 10, 2020, Rod Cowan was attacked and had deadly bodily injury in GUNTERSVILLE, AL. The American Legion and patrons reported it as a fall. Rod died from a result of the injuries of the homicide and the police treated it as a medical incident and did no initial investigation. Rod was unresponsive, unconscious and could not speak for himself. The scene was not secured as a crime scene, it was cleaned up, no report was filed and no witnesses interviewed, and the attacker was protected- thereby justice was obstructed. There is no policy in place, currently, to ensure officers ask more questions on a call of a “medical fall call” to police. We believe this is not up to date police work. Let’s ask the city administration and department to add a new policy to ensure that those who cannot speak for themselves can tell their side of the story: demand interviews of those on scene, pull cctv footage to corroborate story, file a report and start an investigation. A family member of the deceased had to ask for an investigation. Let’s Remember Rod and also prevent this from happening again to any of our loved ones in the future.
