Tyre Nichols’ Autopsy Indicates Brain Injuries Sustained During The Police Attack In Memphis

According to the district attorney’s office, Tyre Nichols’ official autopsy revealed that he “died of brain injuries from blunt force trauma” after receiving a vicious assault from Memphis, Tennessee, police.

In addition, it was discovered that Nichols had a blood alcohol level of.049 at the time of his death, which is “well below the legal limit to drive,” according to the district attorney’s office, despite the fact that first responders had told Nichols’ mother that her son had been driving while intoxicated and under the influence of drugs.

According to ABC News, Nichols’ mother never thought her son was under the influence on the night of the event.

The public will soon be able to view the official autopsy.

Nichols, 29, passed just three days after being assaulted by police on January 7 during a traffic encounter. The officers were captured on camera punching him repeatedly during the encounter.

Five of the seven officers involved in the arrest have been charged with second-degree murder, and they have all been sacked from the Memphis Police Department.

The autopsy is not yet finished, but according to Shelby County District Attorney Steve Mulroy, his office anticipates that the results will show Nichols “died as a result of the injuries sustained in the beating.”

A preliminary independent autopsy performed in January for Nichols’ family revealed substantial bleeding that was probably brought on by the violence.

The family’s attorneys claimed on Wednesday that the findings of the recent autopsy are “highly consistent with our own reporting back in January of this year.”

“What we knew back then, we know now. Tyre Nichols suffered blunt force injuries, and the cause of death was homicide, according to a statement from attorneys Ben Crump and Antonio Romanucci. “The official autopsy report strengthens our resolve to pursue justice for this senseless tragedy,” the statement reads.
