Fikac was put on life support April 4. On Tuesday, he died of septic shock, doctors said.
Fikac was the son of Williamson County Chief Deputy Roy Fikac, who works for Williamson County Sheriff Robert Chody. Chody tweeted a video discussing Cameron Fikac’s death and is searching for answers along with the Fikac family.
"When you have a 20-year-old saying, 'Something's in my throat,' and, from my understanding, making it sound like he's overreacting, that's negligence in my opinion," Chody said.
Cameron Fikac’s family is now mourning his death and trying to raise awareness about what happened.
“He pled for help and he got nothing. So now he has paid an ultimate price for something so preventable,” Roy Ficak said in a statement.
