A friend of the man that died in the custody of Bannock County Sheriff’s Office speaks out.
Lance Quick was booked into the Bannock County Jail for misdemeanor DUI.
Sheriff Lorin Nielsen says Quick had a diagnosis of mental illness and was off his medication and uncooperative.
Arrangements were being made to take Quick to State Hospital South before he died of Cardiac Arrest.
Brandy Perkins, a friend of Quicks, said that because of his struggles he tried to help people that were also struggling and she says she is baffled by what happened and just wants answers.
“I think all of us in the community that knew Lance, that cared for Lance, that love Lance, we’re all confused by these reports. You knew he was off his medications, but medications weren’t provided for him. He gets so stressed out, he has a heart attack? I mean is that possible? Is that feasible? We want answers here. We’re all confused. We all want closure for his family and for him,” says Brandy Perkins, Friend.
Funeral services for Lance Quick are set for Saturday, December 22nd at 11:00 a.m. at the LDS Church on 2140 Satterfield Drive in Pocatello.
