A lawyer for Thomas Mallory's family says his investigation is revealing new names of teens involved in the case. Jonathan Stark came to Lubbock Tuesday. He's in town to interview teenagers present the night Mallory died of a drug overdose.
NewsChannel 11 spoke with Stark over the phone Tuesday afternoon. He tells us six teenagers and their families are cooperating with his law office. Recall, Stark sent 16 Lubbock teenagers letters asking them to come forward or face legal action. He says lawyers for two or three have refused to allow their clients to comment and the rest have not contacted his law firm. Two new names are on Starks list since he started talking with teens.

Thomas Mallory: Autopsy & Toxicology Report
Stark has also learned new details about the night Mallory overdosed. Stark says it's clear there was a group of kids who wanted to call 9-1-1 or take him to the hospital early on. There was another group that persuaded against it.
Also, Stark says the teens did call a local doctor while Mallory was dying. Stark talked with that doctor. The doctor admits the teens called him and he allowed them to take Mallory to his house because he was told Mallory was drunk and throwing up. Stark says the doctor was still irresponsible and he's disgusted that he refuses to bear any responsibility. NewsChannel 11 has tried repeatedly to contact the doctor for comment. He has not returned our calls.
Stark is prepared to file lawsuits in the near future against anyone he deems necessary. He will conduct his last scheduled interview Wednesday morning.
Thomas Mallory's case is still being investigated by the Lubbock District Attorney's Office. No action has yet been taken.
