Doctor Frank Minyard has decided to leave Henry Glover's death as 'undetermined'. After reaching out to the State Attorney General's Office and even the FBI for additional evidence, Minyard believes there's nowhere else to go with the case.
State Attorney General Buddy Caldwell will not get involved. He said the Orleans Parish District Attorney should be the one to guide the coroner on how to proceed in determining a cause of death.
On top of that, Minyard said in a statement the U.S. Attorney's Office and the FBI declined to present his office with additional evidence to re-evaluate the case.
Back in December, after a second trial, former NOPD officer David Warren was acquitted of federal civil rights charges for shooting Glover in the days after Hurricane Katrina.
Glover's death is still considered 'unclassified'. His family has demanded it be ruled a homicide since Warren admitted to shooting Glover, but said he did it in self defense.
"This matter has been going on since 2005 and we are in 2014. If there's anything that should be noted, it is that we are not going to let this thing die. We are not going to let it be forgotten," says Danatus King of the NAACP.
FOX 8 has reached out to the D.A.'s office for comment, but have not heard back from a spokesperson.
In the meantime, Minyard says for now, he is leaving the matter as 'undetermined'.
He added if new evidence is presented to his office, he will evaluate it.
