Corpus Christi police said there appears to be no foul play in the drowning of a 16 year-old-girl who died while swimming at the Port Royal Condominium Pools on Mustang Island on May 04, 2007.
Toynelle Bailey was reported missing around 5:30 p.m. by her friends and her body was found in the deep end at around 7:30 p.m. Toynelle was in town with fellow band mates from Houston and was scheduled to perform in the Buccaneer Day’s Parade the following day. Toynelle’s family has hired the Law Firm of Hilliard and Munoz LLP out of Corpus Christi, Texas to investigate and file a law suit against the owners of Port Royal Condominiums for negligence resulting in Toynelle’s death. Bob Hilliard is a double board certified trial lawyer based out of Corpus Christi, Texas. He is specifically board certified in Personal Injury Trial Law and Civil Trial Law by the State Board of Legal Specialization in Texas. Bob has been trying personal injury law cases since 1983. According to Mr. Hilliard, “these types of drowning incidents are situations that cannot be ignored, huge swimming pools like the those at Port Royal can often create dangerous situations without proper safety measures in place. Facilities like Port Royal owe a duty to provide a reasonably safe swimming environment for their guests.”
