Bone McAllester Norton client Sherry Smith’s story of her fight for justice for the death of her daughter Lauren Agee was the focus of a recent profile on 20/20, a news magazine which airs on ABC. Sherry’s story begins in July 2015 when her daughter Lauren Agee, 21 of Hendersonville, was found dead in Center Hill Lake. She had been camping with friends during Wakefest weekend. But then she allegedly goes missing during the night and her body is found floating late in the afternoon the next day. Her friends never reported her missing or called Lauren's family. Continued inconsistencies in the stories from those with Lauren prior to her disappearance along with their unwillingness to cooperate with investigating authorities, lead Lauren’s mom Sherry Smith to begin a yearlong independent investigation with the help of private investigator Sheila Wysocki who specializes in cold cases. In July 2016 Bonelaw’s Alex Little, on behalf of Sherry Smith, filed a $10 million dollar wrongful death the lawsuit against the individuals at the camp site claiming that her daughter was killed through the intentional, negligent, or reckless acts of the defendants. The case is still in progress led by Alex Little, along with Mandy Strickland Floyd.
