On July 12, 2014, a thirty five year old man died at the Nine Mile Ranch Water Park in South Liberty County, Texas. Timothy was attending a family reunion at the waterpark at the time of his death. According to the Sheriff’s Department, Timothy was missed for several minutes and found floating in the water. He was lifeflighted to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston where he passed away later that day.
Two months later, Timothy's mother received his death certificate. Troubled about the lack of safety guidelines and lack of lifeguards at the waterpark where her son died, she contacted VB Attorneys. She has hired Brian Beckcom to investigate her son’s death and pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against Nine Mile Ranch.
The wrongful death lawsuit was filed in the 75th District Court in Liberty County on February 12, 2015.
