The complaint alleged that while at Broward County work release, Lowdermilk died due to the negligence of Wackenhut employees Kenneth Day, Joseph Cox and Claudia Barramanse, who failed to obtain proper medical history on Lisa Ann, which would have revealed that she had a history of arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease and diabetes mellitus.
Lowdermilk complained of general weakness and shortness of breath on January 8 and January 9, 2001. She died later that day.
The case was settled on May 8, 2003. The Lowdermilk children were represented by attorney Loreen I. Kreizinger of Ft. Lauderdale. See: Lowdermilk v. Wackenhut Corrections Corporation, Seventeenth Judicial Circuit, Broward County, Florida. Case No. 0215311 (07).
