The family of Troy Goode filed a lawsuit against the Southaven Police Department following his death in 2015 after being held in custody. The City of Southaven reached an agreement with the family in July 2021.

Goode’s family claims that his death was caused by police officers when they tased him, tied him with restraints, and put him on his stomach on a stretcher, where he suffocated to death because of the pressure on his lungs. The city announced in July that they had reached an undisclosed agreement with Troy Goode’s family.
