Two Arrested for Manslaughter-Culpable Negligence for Death of WWII Veteran at the Mississippi State Veterans Home

The Oxford Police Department along with the Lafayette County Coroner’s Office announce the arrest of two women connected in
the 2017 death of an elderly male from the Mississippi State Veterans Home in Oxford, Mississippi. On April 15, 2017 medical personnel from the Regional One Trauma Center in Memphis, TN contacted officers regarding the health and welfare of Durley Bratton (age 93 of Oxford, MS). Bratton was a World War II veteran living at the VA facility at the time. The Criminal Investigations Division at OPD led the
investigation on abuse related to injuries suffered by Bratton. Investigators were able to identify two employees of the Mississippi State Veterans Home, Jeanee Dunn (age 25 of Oxford, MS) and Bridget Austin (age 41 of Abbeville, MS), as persons of interest.

While the investigation was under way, Bratton succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased on April 18, 2017. Bratton’s body was taken to the Mississippi State Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy. On July 2, 2018, the autopsy results came back and ruled the death a result of blunt force injuries.

Investigators filed affidavits of arrest and warrants on Dunn and Austin. Dunn was arrested July 2, 2018 and Austin was arrested July 9, 2018. They were both transported to the Lafayette County Detention Center to await their initial appearance for the charge of Manslaughter-Culpable Negligence. Dunn and Austin both received bonds of $250,000 each for the charge of Manslaughter-Culpable Negligence from Justice Court Judge Bell.

Chief Joey East stated that he is “glad to provide some resolution for the Bratton family, though we cannot know their pain. I appreciate the collaborative effort and dedication of our investigators and the county coroner’s office in this lengthy investigation,” The Local Voice Ligature
