George Floyd Independent Autopsy Results Contradict Medical Examiner's Report, Conclude He Died 'By Asphyxia Due to Neck & Back Compression'

Attorneys for George Floyd’s family have announced the results of an independent autopsy into his death.
George Floyd’s family attorney, Ben Crump, says he and the family “reject the notion from the Minneapolis Medical Examiner that the knee from the police officer on George’s neck for almost nine minutes was not the proximate cause of his death.”Ben Crump stated:
“We’re bringing in Dr. Michael Baden to perform an independent autopsy because we saw in the Eric Garner 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.”
“We’re not going to rely on this DA or this city to tell us the truth. We already saw the truth.”
The independent autopsy finds that George Floyd’s death “was homicide caused by asphyxia due to neck and back compression that led to a lack of blood flow to the brain.”
The medical examiner previously ruled that there were no “physical findings to support diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation” — but nobody was believing that.
