CHARLESTON - A man is suing the Kanawha County Sheriff's Department after he claims it and others are responsible for his family member's death.

Fillmore Capital Partners LLC; Fillmore Strategic Management LLC; Fillmore Strategic Investors LLC; Drumm Investors Inc.; GGNSC Glasgow LLC; GGNSC Equity Holding LLC; Beverly Enterprises Inc.; Beverly Enterprises-West Virginia Inc.; Beverly Health and Rehabilitation Services Inc.; Golden Gate National Senior Care LLC; GGNSC Holdings LLC; GGNSC Clinical Services LLC; Brandy Bowles; John Does 1 through 10; and Unidentified Entities 5 through 10 (as to Golden Living Center-Glasgow) were also named as defendants in the suit.

Gretis Myers was a resident of Golden Living Center-Glasgow from Dec. 14, 2012, until June 2, 2013, according to a complaint filed June 18 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Frederick Myers claims Gretis Myers suffered personal injuries and damages while she was a resident at the nursing home and passed away on June 21, 2013.

The defendants were aware of Gretis Myer's medical condition and the care that she required when they represented that they could adequately care for her needs, according to the suit.

Frederick Myers claims Gretis Myers suffered broken bones, dehydration, a cerebrovascular accident, other injuries, and ultimately, her death, during her stay at the nursing home.

Kanawha County Sheriff's Department holds Gretis Myers' estate and has breached its fiduciary duties in failing to bring litigation against Golden Living, according to the suit.

Frederick Myers is seeking compensatory and punitive damages. He is being represented by D. Adrian Hoosier II of the Hoosier Law Firm PLLC.

The case is assigned to Circuit Judge Charles E. King.

Kanawha Circuit Court case number: 15-C-1231
