Coroner Rules Death of Black Man Arrested in Louisiana Homicide by 'Asphyxia'

Robinson's family has called for the investigation into the 22-year-old's death to be handled by an agency other than the local police. He

Mr Cvitanovich said the injuries were "consistent with compressional asphyxia", but complete results, which includes toxicology reports and examining microscopic evidence of Robin's lungs, would take weeks. We are confident that at the end of our process, this is going to be the cause of death.

Lopinto said it was too early to conclude whether a choke hold was used.

Gaylor Spiller, president of the Jefferson Parish chapter of the NAACP, said in a news conference that she considers Lopinto a "decent, honorable sheriff".

"I'm not coming to the conclusion that this was a chokehold", said Sheriff Joe Lopinto. "He knows that the NAACP will be on his trail".

Robinson, 22, was the target of an undercover drug investigation when the Sheriff's Office said he pulled into a Shell station at Jefferson Highway and Labarre Place in Old Jefferson Thursday morning.

The suspect rammed several police cars before crashing his vehicle, he said.

Four deputies caught up with him in the backyard of a nearby home, resulting in a physical struggle. Allegedly, there was a struggle with cops and Robinson stopped breathing. "I'm just so glad because I knew within my heart it wasn't, he just didn't die because the ozone was high", said Spiller. The detectives attempted CPR before he was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead.

The agency's officers are not equipped with body cameras or dash cameras, according to Rivarde.

But Newcastle fans have heard it all before. "I think it is different because you are talking about the league", he said. The season also ended on a high at St James', with Rafa Benitez' men beating top-four chasing Chelsea 3-0.

"They were in a fight with this gentleman effecting an arrest", he added. "It's whether the force was excessive".

"And when the police do press them, we want them to be able to stand and let the police do their job", Robinson said.

Lopinto said Cvitanovich told him of the autopsy report Saturday.

All four detectives involved with apprehending Robinson are white.

They are being reassigned to administrative duty pending the outcome of the investigation, the sheriff said.

Keeven Robinson's grandmother, Sheryl Robinson, spoke after the Sheriff's press conference, saying that her grandson's death is bigger than just one person.

The sheriff said he told reporters Thursday that asthma was the likely culprit because that information - supplied by Robinson's family - was the best information he had at the time.

'They're grieving, and today, they had to find out that Keeven lost his life at the hands of another, and that's very, very hard for them'. "And that's very, very hard for them". "And now they have to move on to making funeral arrangements for this 22-year-old, who should not have died". "So we ask the public and everyone to pray with this family that they will be strong ... and that justice will come for Keeven". We have to have that ability to get to that conclusion and put that to a district attorney.
