NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The Orleans Parish Coroner’s Office released results of autopsies on two people who died while in police custody.

The first, Narada Mealey, a 32-year-old African American male, was found at autopsy to have had a pyloric ulcer with evidence of recent surgical repair.

The second, Evan Sullivan, a 27-year-old Caucasian male, was found at autopsy to have significant pulmonary edema. In neither case was there evidence of trauma.

Present at both autopsies were members of the Orleans Parish Sheriff Office but no independent pathologists nor FBI.

Both cases remain under investigation, pending the results of toxicological and microscopic analysis.
