Blount died July 4, 2015, while hospitalized at Grady. He was 37. His death was caused by the burns, the lawsuit says. Lawyers for Blount’s widow, Chrissie McGee Blount, did not respond to calls seeking to clarify the medical cause of death. A call to a phone number listed for McGee Blount was not answered.
McGee Blount is suing Publix for “the full value of the life of Mansur Blount,” attorney’s fees and court costs.
