FREDERICK, Md. — A Frederick County grand jury on Friday declined to indict three sheriff’s deputies involved in the asphyxiation death of a man with Down syndrome, prompting the man’s family to question the thoroughness of the investigation by the officers’ co-workers.
Robert Ethan Saylor’s parents, Patti and Ronald Saylor, want to review the investigative file compiled by the sheriff’s office and the state medical examiner’s autopsy report before deciding whether to pursue civil action, Baltimore lawyer Sharon Krevor-Weisbaum said. Neither file was available for public inspection. ‘‘The family is extremely disappointed and saddened by the grand jury’s decision,’’ Krevor-Weisbaum said. ‘‘The inquiry into events on that terrible night is not going to stop here.’’
