Mallory mother implicates 9 in ecstasy suit

Mallory mother implicates 9 in ecstasy suit
Awaiting Trial: Mayor's son, local physician among defendants set for Tuesday hearing.

By Brittany Barrientos/News Editor
August 29, 2005

The controversy surrounding the summer death of a Lubbock teen continues to grow with the filing of a civil suit on Thursday.

Thomas Mallory, a 16-year-old Coronado High School student, died June 12. The autopsy report released at the end of June identified the cause of death as methylenedioxymethamphetamine, or ecstasy intoxication.



Louise Mallory Stinespring, Mallory's mother, filed the civil suit on Aug. 25.



The suit lists nine defendants, including Tyler Duane McDougal and Lubbock physician Dr. Guy Wells.



Also included as defendants in the suit were Dylan Lynch Burns, James Thomas Blackstock, Nikolas Tyler Wright, Marcus Eli Oates, Barrett Tyler Ballinger, Matthew Koehl Wessels and Justin Colt Havins.



All of the defendants listed in the suit other than Wells are minors.



Jonathan Stark, Stinespring's attorney who filed the lawsuit, said before the suit was filed many of the defendants were given other options regarding the case, which he said he could not discuss. After no agreements were made, the suit was filed.



"We have been investigating this for four to six weeks," he said. "Through our investigation, we were able to determine who we thought were most responsible for Thomas Mallory's death."



Stark said he had not been in contact with all the defendants listed in the suit prior to its filing.



The autopsy report states Mallory ingested ecstasy at approximately 7:30 p.m. June 10. He arrived at University Medical Center at 11:38 p.m., where he was put on life-supporting medical equipment. Mallory was taken off life support June 12 after being pronounced brain dead.



In the petition, Stinespring claims her son ingested ecstasy that was provided to him by McDougal. Mallory then went with several other teenagers to "The Pit," a local area where teens are known to get together, before becoming ill at approximately 7:30 p.m.



The petition, filed in the 72nd Civil Court, claims Wells was contacted by phone and Mallory was taken to Wells' residence, where he was put in the shower in an attempt to "sober him up." The report states Mallory was "unmistakably unable to care for himself and unmistakably in clear medical distress."



The petition then claims that Mallory was dragged out of Wells' home and left on a fairway of the Lakeridge Country Club golf course, until a non-defendant called 911 at approximately 11:30 p.m.



The suit alleges that the defendants all played some role in Mallory's death.



Specifically, McDougal is accused of knowingly delivering a controlled substance to Mallory, failing to render aid when Mallory was in "unmistakable medical distress," making it more difficult for emergency personnel to locate Mallory by sequestering him in a private residence, causing bodily injury to Mallory by failing to alert emergency personnel and causing airway obstruction while transporting Mallory to carious locations during his "unmistakably dangerous medical condition."



Wells is accused of negligence for allowing the minor defendants to transport Mallory out of a public place to his residence, failing to instruct the defendants to either take Mallory to the hospital or call emergency personnel and allowing the defendants to provide untrained medical care to Mallory.



Burns is accused of assisting McDougal to deliver a controlled substance, as well as negligence.



The remaining six defendants are accused of failing to alert emergency personnel, failing to render aid, making it more difficult for emergency personnel to locate Mallory, causing serious bodily injury to Mallory by not contacting emergency personnel and causing airway obstruction to Mallory.



Stark said he felt the suit was necessary based on the amount of responsibility the defendants took in Mallory's death.



"No kids have accepted responsibility," he said. "Until they accept responsibility we're going to go forward with this lawsuit."



Stinespring released this statement to the media as an explanation:



"Our family is still trying to come to terms with Tom's senseless death. I miss Tom so much. I miss his friends and their parents, knowing that Tom's friends did not help him in his most urgent time of need has broken my heart into many pieces. I know that this lawsuit cannot bring Tom back to life, but it can prevent other teens from dying. When this is all finally over, Lubbock's teens will know that ecstasy kills. They will know that their actions have long lasting consequences. They will know that life is precious."



Lubbock Mayor Marc McDougal released this statement to the media through his lawyer about his son's involvement:



"On advice of counsel, we will have no comment on what allegations have been made, but you may be assured that we will vigorously defend any attempt by Mr. Stark and his clients to enrich themselves by this tragic occurrence."



Mark and Traci Havins, parents of Justin Havins, released this statement:



"We were completely unaware of these allegations until we learned about them from the media. The charges put forth by Louise Stinespring and her attorney naming our son Justin are completely unfounded and without truth. Justin is innocent of all charges and we will defend his good name vigorously with council, in court."



As of now, no criminal charges have been filed in the case, but the case is scheduled to go before a grand jury on Tuesday to decide if charges should be filed.

"in times of widespread chaos and confusion, it has been the duty of more advanced human beings - artists, scientists, clowns, and philosophers - to create order. In such times as ours however, when there is too much order, too much m management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption"

<<"We have been investigating this for four to six weeks," he said. "Through our investigation, we were able to determine who we thought were most responsible for Thomas Mallory's death.">>

Unless someone forced a pill down his throat, Thomas Mallory is the one most responsible for his death.

Yeah, everyone knows the risks of taking any drug, you take it at your own risk. If you don't know the exact makeup of a pill, it is on you. You must also watch how much you dose. It could also be an acute reaction to the drug. You can have the same reaction to almost any drug, including aspririn.
