East Baton Rouge Coroner: Federal Judge Sealed Alton Sterling’s Autopsy Report

BATON ROUGE (AP) — East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner Beau Clark says a federal judge has sealed his office’s autopsy report on the death of Alton Sterling, the 37-year-old black man who was shot and killed during a struggle with two white police officers last month.

Clark told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he also is prohibited from releasing a copy of the judge’s order sealing the report. Clark said he signed the report on Monday.

Clark announced last month that the autopsy showed Sterling died of multiple gunshot wounds to the chest and back, but he hasn’t disclosed any other details of his office’s findings.

The Justice Department is investigating Sterling’s fatal shooting outside a Baton Rouge convenience store. Cellphone video of the July 5 shooting triggered widespread protests.
