FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. – The Forsyth County sheriff has closed the case of a mother of five who fell off a balcony and died at a house party, but the family’s attorney wants to talk to him.
Attorney Ralph Fernandez is representing Tamla Horsford’s family.
Fernandez told Channel 2’s Mike Petchenik on Friday that although the case is closed, his work is just beginning.
After filing an open records request, Petchenik was able to get his hands on the entire case file — a file Fernandez will be going through with a fine-toothed comb.
“You’ve got to keep an open mind, even when you are walking through a minefield,” Fernandez said.
When asked if he thought the case was closed prematurely, Fernandez said, “I can’t pass judgment until I review what they have.”
Horsford died last November after attending an overnight sleepover at a Forsyth County home.
A Georgia Bureau of Investigation autopsy says the mother of five suffered a broken neck after she accidentally fell from a balcony.
The case file included previously unseen photos of the backyard where partygoers found Horsford’s body and transcriptions of interviews with witnesses, including the home’s owner
