On March 14, LaChay Batts' younger brother Marvin D. Scott III, 26, died after being taken into custody by police and moved to a Texas jail.

But the 28-year-old mother of two admits that she is still struggling with his death.

Scott was arrested outside of an outlet mall after security guards reported smelling marijuana in the vicinity and called police. Scott was then brought to Collin County Detention Facility, but didn’t make it out of the facility alive and his family wants to know why and who is responsible.
