Indy Star, July 16, 2014

Timothy Jackson was hospitalized for more than 10 days after he was shot Dec. 22. His family was never allowed to see him. He died late at night on Jan. 2. The family was notified of his death shortly after. Months after the death, the family remains angry. His brother Jimmy Jackson said he and his parents didn't get to see Timothy in his final days. They didn't get to say goodbye. "We wanted to be with him," Jimmy Jackson said, "but they won't let us."
