Brian Christopher Lawler passed away on Sunday, July 29 after he was taken to a local hospital due to a suicide attempt the night before. Lawler’s father, Jerry Lawler, spoke with Fox 13’s Zach Crenshaw on his son’s death, saying that he was “glad to hold his son’s hand when his heart stopped beating around 3:30 p.m.”
It was also noted that Brian Lawler’s death is currently under investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. On that issue, Jerry said that “there may be more to this than meets the eye.”
Memphis attorney, Jeff Rosenblum, has also asked for an independent review of the events prior to Brian’s hanging, but he is not associated with anyone in Lawler’s family.
