Humphrey, Christy Carol

Christy Carol HunphreyChristy Carol Humphrey, age 28, died Aug. 23, 2006 in Jacksonville, NC. In March 2012 a jury was selected to hear the wrongful death lawsuit trial of the doctor accused of not properly suturing Humphrey after her cesarean delivery. The child was healthy. Humphrey’s mother, Betty Jean Simpson, sued Humphrey’s obstetrician, claiming that a major artery in Humphrey’s uterus was not stitched before she was sent to an out-of-county hospital for further treatment. The result of the lawsuit is unknown.
