Coroner: Handcuffed New Iberia man who died in back of police cruiser shot himself in chest, website reports

A 22-year-old New Iberia man who" rel="nofollow - Louisiana State Police say shot himself to death while handcuffed in the back of a police cruiser had a gunshot wound in the chest, a coroner's report shows, and not in the back as police had previously said," rel="nofollow - reported.

But the coroner's report agreed with in ruling Victor White III's death a suicide.

Police has said White, who was arrested on a minor drug offense in March, shot himself in the back while handcuffed inside the police cruiser. According to the NBC News report, a newly obtained coroner's report shows that White was shot in the chest, and that he had abrasions on his face, something police had not reported.

White, the son of a Baptist minister, was killed by a bullet that entered his right chest and exited under his left armpit, NBC reported citing the coroner document.

Despite the fact that White was reportedly handcuffed during the ordeal, the coroner ruled the death a suicide, the news report said.

White's hands were never tested for gunshot residue and family members of the dead man say they don't believe the account given by authorities, the website said.

White's father, Rev. Victor White II, told NBC that he didn't believe that his son - a man with a new child, a girlfriend and a job - would have wanted to commit suicide.

"You can't make me understand how my son took his left hand, when he was handcuffed behind the back, and shot himself," White told the news organization. "I don't believe a thing they're saying at this point."

Read the" rel="nofollow - full story here.


In the wee hours of the morning on March 2, 22-year-old" rel="nofollow - Victor White III was shot while in the custody of Louisiana's New Iberia Sheriff's  department and was pronounced dead later that day at a local hospital. The case has been of particular interest to me for the past few months because of who the law enforcement officials fingered as the triggerman. They alleged that White III shot himself—in the backseat of a police car, while his hands were cuffed behind his back, with a gun that mysteriously appeared after they had searched and arrested him. 

According to initial information offered by Trooper Stephen Hammons to the press back in March, Victor III was stopped under the suspicion that he was involved in a fight at a convenience store near his home. Hammons claimed the unnamed deputy involved searched White III, found unidentified narcotics on his person, and arrested him. When they arrived at Iberia Parish Sherrif's Office, they said Victor III refused to exit the cruiser and became "uncooperative." That's when he allegedly "produced" a handgun and fired off one round into his back, killing himself.
