Independent Autopsy Proves George Floyd Died From Asphyxiation From Sustained Pressure when his neck and back were compressed by Minneapolis police officers during his arrest last week.
The pressure cut off blood flow to his brain, that autopsy determined that George Floyd death was as a result of suffocation
An earlier examination over George Floyd’s death made by County Officials has been contradicted by a new independent autopsy.
Experts were hired by George Floyd’s family and the Hennepin County Medical Examiner and they came to conclusions that his death was a homicide.
The independent autopsy contrasts with an initial county autopsy last week that said there were no findings to support traumatic asphyxia or strangulation, according to The Associated Press, there was no mention of asphyxiation in the first place.
One of the doctors hired to conduct the autopsy, Allecia Wilson, said the Floyd was dead within four minutes after he was held to the ground, the independent examiners said.
Wilson conducted the autopsy with Michael Baden, the former chief medical examiner of New York City who conducted independent autopsies of Eric Garner and Michael Brown

For George Floyd, the ambulance was his hearse,” he was essentially “dead on the scene” on May 25, said Ben Crump, an attorney for the family.
“Beyond question, he would be alive today if not for the pressure applied to his neck by fired officer Derek Chauvin and the strain on his body from the two additional officers kneeling him in his back” He added.
Floyd was dead within four minutes after he was held to the ground, the independent examiners said.
Chauvin has been charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. Crump said he should be charged with first-degree murder.
