Perry Cohen’s Mother files wrongful death lawsuit.
Just as the two year anniversary of the disappearance of Austin Stephanos and Perry Cohen approaches, the family of one of the teens announced what legal action they will take.
The statement was delivered this morning at the entrance of the Palm Beach County Courthouse.
This anniversary also coincides with certain statute of limitations in this cause.
Recently, a federal judge ruled that the family could file a lawsuit against the Stephanos family.
The family were once close, but the relationship deteriorated after the teens disappeared on July 24th, 2015. The release of an FDLE report stated that the mother of Austin knew the boys were heading out on a stormy day. The final Instagram message from the Cohen indicated that the boys were attempting to reach the Bahamas.
Here is a link to a gallery of photos of the statement and the lawsuit.
