The Facts about Freddie Gray’s Alleged “Pre-Existing” Injury

The truth about Freddie Gray's 'pre-existing injury from car accident'

Online reports are swirling that Freddie Gray had spinal surgery shortly before he died in police custody, and had collected a payout in a settlement from a car accident. Those reports — which raise questions about the injury that led to his death in April 19 — point to Howard County court records as proof.
