Call to Action

February 17-20th!!!

All it takes is a few moments of your time to help a mother seeking answers in the death of her son.

The police and coroner went against protocol every step of this case!

What REALLY happened to Marcus Merritt Sr.? They say suicide, but NOTHING adds up!

After our last Call to Action, the Louisiana State Police exhumed Marc's body and did an autopsy. Sadly when we got the results 6 months later, no questions were answered and even more problems came out.


Friday, Feb. 17th, 8am to Monday, Feb. 20th, 6pm

This is an online event.

Dear Sir,
I am writing regarding the death of Marcus Merritt Sr.. It is clear that the investigation into his death was not done effectively and appropriately according to standards and protocol. His mother, Royce Eckley deserves answers and deserves to have the death of her son investigated throughly by an independent unbiased entity. Given it was the responsibility of the Leonville police and coroner to provide this initially and that did not occur, and the exhumation of Marcus's body and subsequent investigation still left too many questions unanswered, we call upon you to release ALL of the reports pertaining to Marcus's death. The initial sheet of paper presented to Mrs. Eckley on December 13, 2016, with three paragraphs was not acceptable and the report that was sent to her on December 27th, did not include any of the attachments that were noted in the report. Along with that there are things that are very concerning such as the statement by Chief Noel saying he washed the blood off of the gun prior to placing it in evidence. Mrs. Eckley has been through 4 years of hell simply trying to get a proper and thorough investigation into her son's death and no one should have to endure all that she has. Again, please release the full report, the autopsy report, all attachments and all photos from the death scene and autopsy to Mrs. Eckley.
Nothing short of this is acceptable.
