Brief: Coronor deems man's death undetermined
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Orleans Parish Coroner Frank Minyard says he does not have any new evidence that would make him change the death certificate to "homicide" for a man who was shot and burned by New Orleans police after Hurricane Katrina.
That means the cause of Henry Glover's death remains officially unknown.
"There is no new scientific evidence to base a reclassification and the U.S. attorney and the FBI have declined to present any additional evidence for me to evaluate and reclassify this death," Minyard wrote in a news release. "For this reason, I am today leaving this matter as undetermined."
He agreed to reopen the investigation after a Dec. 16 protest by Glover's family and supporters.
