The recently released autopsy report from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in North Carolina sheds light on the circumstances surrounding the death of Darryl Tyree Williams, a 32-year-old man who passed away during a confrontation with the police, Your Content has learned.

The report, made public on Wednesday, confirms that Williams died from “sudden cardiac arrest,” which was attributed to a combination of cocaine intoxication, physical exertion, the use of conducted energy weapons, and physical restraint.

The autopsy findings categorize Williams’ death as a homicide, emphasizing the role played by the police confrontation in the tragic incident.

The report revealed the presence of cocaine and a marijuana-related chemical, among other substances, in Williams’ blood, as detected through toxicology analysis.

The investigation into Williams’ death and the actions of the Raleigh Police Department officers involved has been undertaken by the State Bureau of Investigation.

In connection with the case, multiple officers have been placed on leave. Williams’ family has demanded the termination of the officers involved and their prosecution.

The autopsy report also mentioned that the officers initially sought to arrest Williams for alleged possession of a controlled substance.

During the encounter, the police deployed a Taser on Williams three times, resulting in visible injuries on his back consistent with stun gun use.

Body and dashboard camera footage released by the police in February captured Williams, who was Black, vehemently protesting his innocence and highlighting his pre-existing heart condition. The autopsy report confirmed that Williams had a history of an unspecified irregular heartbeat.

Furthermore, the report highlighted that his death was also influenced by obesity and underlying “hypertensive and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.”

Additionally, the report noted that Williams had a documented medical history of tobacco, marijuana, and cocaine abuse.

As of now, the State Bureau of Investigation has not provided any updates regarding the ongoing inquiry.

Efforts to obtain comments from the Williams family’s attorney and spokespersons from the Raleigh police remain unanswered at the time of this report, according to U.S. News.
