Evidence preservation request in officer-involved death

Attorneys for the Estate of Chad Songer, the man who died after his arrest by Bledsoe County deputies and K9 Orton on January 31, have written a notice of spoliation to representatives of Bledsoe County, the City of Pikeville, and Bledsoe County Sheriff’s Department deputies Chase Roberts and Matt Brock, instructing them to preserve evidence from the incident.

The spoliation letter, written February 8 by attorney Robert Floyd Davis with the law firm of Davis, Kessler and Davis in Chattanooga, instructs representatives for the agencies to not destroy, conceal or alter any paper or electronic files, radio communication, video, photos, or other data “that relate in any way to the personal injury and death of Songer that occurred on or about January 31, 2021.”
