The city filed a creditor’s notice against the estate of Tamir Rice looking for a past due amount of $500.
What’s that $500 for?
It’s “owing for emergency medical services rendered as the decedent’s last dying expense under Ohio Revised Code.”
“That the city would submit a bill and call itself a creditor after having had its own police officers slay 12-year-old Tamir displays a new pinnacle of callousness and insensitivity,” one of Rice’s family attorneys, Subodh Chandra, told Scene this afternoon. “The kind of poor judgment that it takes to do such a thing is nothing short of breathtaking. Who on earth would think this was a good idea and file this on behalf of the city? This adds insult to homicide.
