Ex-NBA Baller Marcus Camby Sued In The Wrongful Death Of Nephew
The father of departed 9-year-old, Marcus Carter McGhee, filed a civil suit in court this week, claiming his uncle, Marcus Camby, is responsible for his death. Marcus Kendall McGhee and Camby’s sister fathered the child together. The young boy went missing last Thanksgiving and his body was found in Camby’s lake as a result of drowning, according to Chron. Now, the child’s father is blaming Camby for being negligent with his safety.
The suit alleges that Camby failed to supervised the child, and knew of his “cognitive deficiencies”. They say Camby knew McGhee was at risk to wander off. They also argue that the ex-Houston Rocket’s man-made pond was not fenced, contributing to his son’s drowning during a family visit of the property.
The boy’s father is asking for compensation from the 17 year NBA veteran, for damages caused by “pain and suffering”.
