It was reported nearly a week ago that Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, did not want the results of Freddie Gray’s autopsy to go public but surely small details have leaked. The results were obtained by the Baltimore Sun yesterday and detail that Gray suffered a ‘High Energy Injury’ at the hands of police.
Reports the Baltimore Sun:
The state medical examiner’s office concluded that Gray’s death could not be ruled an accident, and was instead a homicide, because officers failed to follow safety procedures “through acts of omission.”
Though Gray was loaded into the van on his belly, the medical examiner surmised that he may have gotten to his feet and was thrown into the wall during an abrupt change in direction. He was not belted in, but his wrists and ankles were shackled, putting him “at risk for an unsupported fall during acceleration or deceleration of the van.”
The medical examiner compared Gray’s injury to those seen in shallow-water diving incidents.
“I strongly condemn anyone with access to trial evidence who has leaked information prior to the resolution of this case,” she said following the autopsy leak.
The autopsy was completed April 30 but the full results have not been made public.
Thoughts and prayers with the Gray family.
