The full autopsy of Freddie Gray, who died in police custody on April 12th, hasn’t yet been made public. But the Baltimore Sun reported that it has received a leaked copy of it from anonymous sources:

Freddie Gray suffered a single “high-energy injury” to his neck and spine — most likely caused when the police van in which he was riding suddenly decelerated, according to a copy of the autopsy report obtained by 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.”

The autopsy report will not be released until this Friday and the newspaper was denied comment from the state’s attorney general and medical examiner’s offices.

Michael Hausam summarizes the points here on IJReview.
