The latest autopsy states that Victor White shot himself in the chest, despite his hands being cuffed behind his back. This assertion is based solely on the police report. The coroner failed to check Mr. White’s hands for gunpowder residue. The family wishes to conduct an independent investigation.
Read the autopsy report here.
The attorney representing the family of Victor White III — a 22-year-old man who authorities claim shot and killed himself while locked in a patrol car with his hands cuffed behind him — says police are not only responsible for his death but launched a cover-up immediately afterwards.
“He didn’t kill himself,” Louisiana attorney Carol Powell Lexing told The Huffington Post. “They killed him and they have been covering it up instead of dealing with the rogue cop within their department. The bigger question is why did they kill this boy?”
The Daily Iberian:
The family of Victor White III, the New Iberian whose death while in custody of the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office was ruled a suicide, has hired a lawyer who is asking the U.S. Justice Department to investigate the circumstances of the shooting that kiled the 22-year-old man.
