WTH? MN County Medical Examiner Finds “No Physical Findings that Support a Diagnosis of Traumatic Asphyxia or Strangulation” in George Floyd Death

This does not make sense.
No one was expecting this.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner found – “No physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation” in the death of George Floyd on Monday.
Floyd begged for mercy and repeatedly complained he couldn’t breathe when Police Officer Derek Chauvin was kneeling on his neck for seven minutes while he laid cuffed on the street.

The Washington Examiner reported:

In the charges brought against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on Friday, a new finding shows the county medical examiner concluded the death of George Floyd was not a result of asphyxia or strangulation.

An autopsy of Floyd was conducted Tuesday following his death on Monday after Chauvin restrained him for nearly nine minutes by pressing his knee on Floyd’s neck.

The full report by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s office is pending but so far has found “no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation.”

Floyd’s underlying health conditions included coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease. The report says the underlying health conditions, combined with Chauvin’s restraint and any possible intoxicants in Floyd’s system, likely contributed to his death.
