New information has surfaced regarding the mysterious death of well-known Farmington Hills attorney.
Family attorney Brian Dailey said Lloyd Johnson did not die of stab wounds, but of something different, saying there is more to this case than we know now.
(Update Friday: Johnson’s wife, Laura Johnson, now faces charges. More on this.)
Dailey made that statement Thursday afternoon based on what he said police took from the man’s family home, including bloody sheets, several prescription drugs that belonged to Johnson’s wife and, most shocking, possible human tissue.
“The police report that they took several bags of what appeared to be human tissue from the freezer in the kitchen area,” Dailey said.
“As I indicated to you — this is not a run-of-the-mill stab wound. This is something other than that. That is really all we have at this point,” he said.
Johnson died at a Botsford Hospital Wednesday morning. Johnson’s wife, Laura, has been arrested and remained in police custody Thursday.
Dailey said Johnson had high amounts of opiates in his system when he arrived at the hospital, which suggests he may have poisoned.
The family dog was also found dead was at the home. Dailey said the dog has been poisoned. Earlier reports had said the dog had been stabbed.
WWJ has also learned that Laura Johnson was planning to file for divorce.
The case will be turned over to the prosecutor’s office.
Johnson was a well known attorney in Metro Detroit, having worked at Geoffrey Fieger’s law office for six years.
