EMT worker charged with murder of 35-year-old Illinois man

35 year old family Count Moore Jr. is seeking justice after a call to local EMT specialists resulted in his untimely death, and now two paramedics are being charged in his death.

According to reports, EMT’s were called to the scene after Moore Jr. began to have health problems due to alcohol withdrawal.

Autopsy reveals man died of suffocation after being improperly tied to an EMT transport cot

Both Earl’s family and police responders were shocked and horrified to witness the sight of Earl being dragged by his arms, improperly strapped to a stretcher, and taken by a Lifestar Ambulance. (EMT’s) ignore.

Peter Cadigan, 50, and Peggy Finley, 40, are currently charged with the death of Moore Jr. after an autopsy revealed that Moore Jr. died of suffocation after being improperly tied to a paramedic carrier carrier.

Both Cadigan and Finley deny any wrongdoing, despite the fact that Finely admitted fault via text message to her EMT colleague.

Could this be just a case of negligence or could there be more to the story?

The body-cam footage is unsettling. Springfield police arrived at Moore’s home around 2 a.m. to check on him, as he was unwell.

Video clips show him writhing in bed, panting and unable to even answer basic questions.

The ambulance arrived 15 minutes late, when an impatient paramedic grabbed Moore’s hand to pull him

An officer can be heard telling Moore that an ambulance is on its way, and that one has finally arrived. However, the two EMTs who arrived, Cadigan and Finley, are now charged with murder as they handle the situation.

They were 15 minutes late by the time paramedics got there, a red flag signaling more problems to come.

Finley can be seen looking almost annoyed with the situation and callously asks him to sit up.

Then she threw her notebook down and grabbed Moore’s hand, dragging him to the floor.

Finley never even checked his vitals, she just watched when she could see Moore writing about some kind of pain.

The responding officers were the ones who eventually managed to get Moore out of the house and to another EMT, identified as Cadigan, who began tying Moore down to the transport cot.

“They treated him like a criminal,” said NAACP Illinois President Teresa Haley.

“They treated him like a criminal,” said Teresa Haley, President of NAACP Illinois. “They literally hit him on the stretcher, with their hands behind his back, like they were going to handcuff him.”

Haley went on to say that they tried CPR when Moore arrived at the hospital, but it was too late and he was unable to resuscitate.

She added that Springfield is “a very racist town, even though we’ve worked very hard to change that.”

Finley’s story was ultimately not supplemented, she told the hospital that Moore was “aggressive” and that she didn’t want to “poke the bear” and take away his vital signs.

That contradicts what she told police, in that she said she checked his vitals at the scene.

She even tried to get another EMT to cover her, begging them to say that Moore “responded” on the way to the hospital.

Bodycam video shows Moore is not as belligerent as EMTs have said, with both pleading not guilty

Prosecutors said the video did not lie and that he was clearly not aggressive.

Moore’s attorney, Bob Hilliard, said “the tilt of the band changes your windpipe,” leading to Moore’s untimely death.

Since then, neither Finley nor Cadigan have pleaded guilty to first-degree murder.
