According to the Huntsville Police Department, the police bought the May 1995 to transport inmates. The vehicle was later repurposed in the early 2000s when the Madison County Sheriff’s Office took over all detention services. The last time it was used was in March to move evidence approved for disposal from cleared cases. The family has since hired lawyer Ben Crump, who is now working to find out the truth of what happened to Nance.
“We will get to the truth of what happened to Christina Nance, the young Black woman found dead in the police van in front of the Huntsville Police Department,” Crump said. “We lift up Christina’s family with prayer as they mourn this devastating loss.”
Nance family is hopeful they will get the answers they need.
“Her spirit will not rest, and her spirit in our hearts and minds and souls will not rest as well until we have some kind of understanding,” said Frank Matthews, Nance’s cousin.
