In June of 2012, William Hurt, Deadra Hurt, and Andrea Hurt were among four teens arrested in connection with the slaying of Marcus Golike.
Harley wade, the fourth teen arrested, is not listed as a plaintiff on the lawsuit. He's currently being held in the Vanderburgh County Jail on $70 thousand bond for an unrelated crime. Wade was reportedly living with the hurts at the time of Golike's death.
In the lawsuit, the Hurts accuse law enforcement of wrongly arresting the teens, coercing a false confession from William Hurt, and threatening Deadra Hurt until she gave a false confession. It also suggests Golike's death wasn't a murder at all, and instead, a suicide.
The lawsuit names several Evansville Police Officers, the City of Evansville, two Kentucky State Police officers and a Kentucky Medical Examiner.
