Another march for Thomas set

“We want to keep it in the public eye.”

That was the explanation for a march planned for Saturday in memory of the late Guy Thomas.

“We need to keep this in the eye of the public because to me, nothing has been done,” said LouVerne Miller, Guy Thomas’ aunt. “I feel the police officer should be in jail, but more than that, I want to keep this in the eye of the public.”

The march will begin at 3 p.m. at the Ironton City Center and end with a cookout at the Ninth Street playground.

Thomas’ body was found late in the evening of March 8 underneath an Ironton police cruiser in the police station parking lot.

Authorities surmised he had been dragged 10 blocks. An independent investigation was conducted into the incident and the final report turned over to the Lawrence County Prosecutor’s Office.

Prosecutor J.B. Collier, Jr., said he will take the result of that investigation to a Lawrence County grand jury in May or June.
