George Floyd tested positive for coronavirus in April, but that was not a factor in his death. Full autopsy Revealed.
Hennepin County Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Andrew Baker says Floyd is no longer a sign when four Minneapolis police officers killed him when he was arrested Monday.
“First… positive [COVID-19] After the onset and resolution of the disease, which can last several weeks, the autopsy results are largely asymptomatic but persistent… reflecting positive from previous infections, ”Baker wrote in the statement, released Wednesday with the approval of the Floyd family.
The full 20-page report says Floyd’s death was a homicide – he died while his heart was wrinkled while his neck was wrinkled in a widely viewed video of Officer Derek Chuvv’s arrest.
Although Floyd’s family conducted an independent autopsy released this week and ruled differently – Floyd’s assassination was caused by suffocation from the neck and back, as fellow officer Thomas Lane pressed on his stomach.
Two other officers, J Alexander Kueng and Do Tao, who assisted in the arrest of Lau and Lau, were fired and charged.
The findings of the medical examiner’s office include Floyd’s “other significant conditions”: heart disease, fentanyl intoxication, and the recent release of methamphetamine – details that angered Floyd’s family lawyer Benjamin Crump.
Crump said Tuesday that the inclusion of those conditions, which were not considered a cause of death in the autopsy, was an attempt to assassinate Floyd’s character prior to the authorities’ raids.
With the positive COVID-19 test, the entire autopsy detailed Floyd suffering blunt force injuries to his face, shoulders, arms, hands and feet; Injuries to his wrist from handcuffs; And broken rib during cardiac rejuvenation.
