On Behalf of Family of 21-Year-Old CJ Student Found Dead in Atlantic City
Was Volunteer Firefighter Son Forced or Lured into Using Drugs That Killed Him
in Motel Room Five Blocks from Tropicana Where He was Registered?
Did Police Inadequately Investigate, Assuming Just Another Drug Addict Died?
»For more than three years Kevin Sr. and Theresa McDevitt of Tuxedo Park, New York hit brick walls, unable to get police, prosecutors, or the news media to fully investigate circumstances surrounding their son's strange 2010 multi-drug death in Atlantic City. They never wavered from the belief that Kevin, Jr. ever used hard drugs, or was an habitual drug user.
In early 2014, Kevin Sr., found Richard Lavinthal via the Vidocq Society website. For a decade, while Lavinthal served as the spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office and later the New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice. the former wire and AM daily news reporter directed communications pro bono for Vidocq, the Philadelphia-based private homicide-investigating organization.
More than $6,000 was charged to the dying / dead man's debit / credit card. State criminal cases involving an alleged human trafficker, a convicted prostitute and an alleged prostitute may be resolved soon and the McDevitts fear they will never know what really happened to their son.
This was our most intensive investigative effort. We devoted hundreds of hours looking into the circumstances, running down leads across the U.S., emailing and talking with contacts in government and the private sector around the U.S. We also developed a 30-page timeline incorporating bank, ATM, telephone, and loss prevention timing. Throughout the process we kept in almost daily touch with the family. On August 31st our website for the case was launched and the exclusive news interviews we negotiated for the family ran in print and online newspapers in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and Middletown, New York.
