HOUSTON – The mother of a woman who was found dead near a Houston pizzeria almost two years ago has filed a lawsuit.

In court documents filed Jan. 31 in the Harris County 61st District Court, Lynne Bracken recounts the events which allegedly led to the death of 22-year-old Kella Bracken in late February 2015.

Listed as defendants in the litigation are Maytham Alsaedy; Laaco Ltd., doing business as Storage West; Peter Piper Pizza, Inc./Pizza Properties, Inc.; Public Storage, Inc.; Wal-Mart, Inc.; and Yale Enforcement Services Inc.

Per the original petition, Alsaedy “accosted, battered, sexually assaulted, and stabbed” Kella Bracken in the Wal-Mart parking lot located at 5655 East Sam Houston Parkway North on or around Feb. 25, 2015. It further asserts that Alsaedy subsequently drove Kella Bracken to a parking lot owned and operated by Laaco and Public Storage and continued the purported attack before taking her within the vicinity of Peter Piper Pizza, where “she was left for dead.”

A security guard for the restaurant reportedly recovered Kella Bracken’s body three days later, the complaint says.

Kella Bracken’s mother claims the businesses knew of the dangerous conditions in the area, stating that the subject events were foreseeable.

Alsaedy was arrested and charged with capital murder.

Lynne Bracken consequently seeks unspecified monetary damages.

She is represented by attorneys James E. Payne and Ronnie Turner, Jr. of the law firm Provost Umphrey Law Firm, L.L.P. in Beaumont.
