During a press conference, #BenjaminCrump stated, “We’ve just spoken recently with [the] district attorney. We’re going to take custody back of #GeorgeFloyd’s body, and we’re bringing in Dr. Michael Baden to perform an independent autopsy because we saw in the #EricGarner case and so many other cases where they have these people who work with the city come up with things that are such an illusion.”
Most recently, Baden performed an autopsy on Jeffrey Epstein, at the request of his brother. He also testified for the defense of OJ Simpson.
This comes after it was reported by CNN that the initial autopsy found that force and Floyd’s health conditions contributed to his death; however, the report also suggested that Floyd may have had “potential intoxicants” in his system that also could’ve played a role in his death.
As previously reported, Derek Chauvin has been arrested and charged for the death of George Floyd. This comes after nights of protests in Minneapolis. While some were peaceful, others did include looting and burning of 3 police precincts. At the moment, it’s unclear if the other officers will be charged for the death of George Floyd but they have been fired.
As you know, George Floyd died, during an arrest, on Monday. A 17-year-old filmed the incident and posted the video, in which it went viral.
