Family of man found naked, dead in Lincoln County jail cell wins $2.85 million settlement

Lincoln County will pay $2.85 million to settle a wrongful death lawsuit brought by the family of an inmate with mental illness who died behind bars in 2015.

Bradley Thomas' naked, lifeless body was found inside a county jail cell roughly two weeks after the Waldport resident was booked on misdemeanor charges.

Autopsy results showed that Thomas, 55, suffered from significant dehydration before his death on April 8, 2015, the lawsuit claimed, and that he had stopped eating and drinking while in custody.

The suit also alleged that jail supervisors and staff identified that Thomas suffered from a severe mental illness and had documented his deteriorating condition, but failed to provide for his basic needs, including medication or mental health treatment.
