Friends of man who died in jail march on Nashua police station
NASHUA - Friends and co-workers of Jeffrey Pendleton, who recently died in the Valley Street jail in Manchester, held a second march in his name on Thursday, this time in front of the Nashua police department that arrested the 26-year-old.
Friends say Pendleton worked at a Burger King in Nashua and was active in the Fight for $15 wage movement.
"He was a true fighter and now it's our time to fight back for him," reads a post on a new Facebook event page called NH Justice for Jeffrey Pendleton.
The group marched last week outside the Hillsborough County jail, where Pendleton died. Pendleton, who was homeless, had been unable to afford the $100 bail. He died March 13 after he was found unconscious in his cell.
