Comcast Sued in Wrongful Death Suit

Comments Off

In December, a 23-year-old woman was beaten to death in her home, due to the cable company allowing a repairman to continue working although he had been suspected in a pervious slaying, a wrongful death lawsuit filed in Cook County Circut Court, alleges.

The wrongful death complaint says Comcast Corporation didn’t take action when they were informed that Anthony Triplett was suspected in the death of a customer back in October.

Employed as Comcast subcontractor, Triplett is accused of raping and killing a woman during a service call to her home on December 8th. He is also charged with the death of another woman who was found dead in her home October 23, just two days after Triplett had a service call there.

It should not have happened. Comcast should have been more careful about its workers.

Triplett has pleaded not guilty to charges of murder, sexual assault, robbery and burglary and is being held without bond.

The lawsuit alleges detectives investigating the death questioned Triplett and took fingerprints and a DNA sample Oct. 27, and then notified Comcast that Triplett was a suspect.
