JACKSON, Miss. – A medical examiner's autopsy reports a Tennessee man died of accidental "complications of LSD toxicity" in police custody in Mississippi.
The Mississippi medical examiner's autopsy report for 30-year-old Troy Goode of Memphis was posted online Tuesday by WMC-TV (http://bit.ly/1SviiCO ). Public Safety Department spokesman Warren Strain confirmed its authenticity to The Associated Press.
The autopsy was conducted July 20, two days after Goode died in Southaven police custody at a hospital in that Memphis suburb. The report contradicts independent autopsy results released last month by an attorney for Goode's family, which found he died from being hog-tied.
Southaven police say they arrested Goode after he ran from his vehicle while he and his wife were on their way to a Widespread Panic concert. His attorney says Goode took a small amount of LSD before the arrest.
