Taser Death: Sampson Castellane (Fife, WA)

It happened again! This time we learned about another taser-related death from villager Zeke. Sampson Castellane, 29, was electrocuted with the taser guns of unidentified Puyallup tribal officers at the Emerald Queen Casino on July 5. [SOURCE]

The tribal police indicate that Castellane was seen fighting another man in their hotel room. Two officers went to the hotel room and knocked on the door. According to the police one of the men in the room attacked the officers ... that is when 50,000 volts of electricity were pumped into Castellane's body.

Castellane was then handcuffed. Shortly after he was in police custody he stopped breathing. CPR was performed, and he was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead.

It will be interesting what the other man in the hotel room has to say about all of this. Stay tuned.

This was unfair! The other man in the hotel room was pleading to the police that Sam had a week heart. That didn't stop them from murdering Sam and leaving a beautiful 2 yr old baby boy fatherless and a young beautiful bride a widow!!! This is so painful to try to fathom. You are missed and forever love Sam. Bobbie

Bobbie - Please know that this blog is praying for the friends and family of Mr. Castellane. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to support. Hopefully, the truth will come out and someone in the police department will be held accountable for his taser-related killing.

Do you know about Native man Cecil Lacey Jr., tased and dead in 2015 in Washington State?
