Wrongful Death Suit In Ottawa Gets Thrown Out

Posted by wlpo on January 19, 2013

A wrongful death lawsuit against an Ottawa firefighter has been tossed out of La Salle County Court.

Kenneth Cusick was sued by relatives of his wife Tracy Cusick who was found dead in the Cusick’s Ottawa home in 2006.    However during a hearing yesterday, Judge Eugene Daugherity threw out the suit because a new family attorney hasn’t taken up the case.

For years, Tracy Cusick’s death was listed as an accidental drowning after she was found dead in her home’s bathroom.  Her body was exhumed and new tests were done showing she was a victim of foul play.  Her husband Ken was the only adult around when she died.

Kenneth Cusick has never been criminally charged in his wife’s death.
