An independent autopsy report released on the afternoon of June 1 local time showed that Freud died of suffocation caused by neck and back compression, which resulted in insufficient blood supply to the brain.
According to Fox News, the Freudians hired two experts, including Dr. Michael Baden, a forensic pathologist, to conduct an independent investigation. “Freud has no other health problem that could lead to death,” Michael Baden said
The result of the investigation is inconsistent with the official result. According to a criminal complaint filed by the prosecutor of henneping County against Derek chovan, a white police officer, henneping County medical examiner did not find “physical examination results supporting traumatic asphyxia”. The preliminary autopsy results mentioned in the complaint show that Freud suffered from heart disease and potential toxins in his body, which may have led to his death. Local, state and federal law enforcement agencies are investigating the cause of Freud’s death, Hennepin County forensic office said in a statement.
According to the criminal complaint issued by the heneping county prosecutor’s office, Derek shovan knelt on Freud’s neck for a total of 8 minutes and 46 seconds, and remained in the original action for 2 minutes and 53 seconds after Freud failed to respond.
