Unconventional autopsy discovers George Floyd’s death a homicide due to ‘asphyxiation from sustained force’
An independent autopsy called George Floyd’s death a homicide and said that he died of “asphyxiation from sustained pressure” — an examination that is at odds with the medical findings
The autopsy brought forward by Floyd’s family says compression to the neck and back, caused by officers pressing on him, led to a none flow of blood to the brain.
The independent autopsy’s examination came after the Hennepin County Medical Examiner found “no physical findings” to “support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation,” according to a criminal objection emancipated by the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office on Friday.
Initial autopsy results put in the complaint consisting Chauvin said fused effects of being limited, any potential intoxicants in Floyd’s system and his basic health issues, notwithstanding heart disease, probably contributed to the man’s death. Toxicology results can take longer time.
The objection noted the examination are initial and the full report from the medical examiner is still pending.
