MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - The U.S. Attorney's office in Milwaukee says it will look into the death of West Allis teenager Corey Stingley, to see if a full-blown investigation should be done.
Chief prosecutor James Santelle says Stingley's family has not provided enough evidence to indicate that Corey's civil rights were violated.
The 16-year-old was about to steal liquor from a West Allis store when three shoppers detained him in December of 2012. He died two weeks later, and state prosecutors said there was enough evidence to charge the three shoppers with anything.
Stingley's father and other critics racism in the handling of the case. Corey was black, and the three shoppers were white.
