CM – Autopsy of former NFL player Robert Foster shows strangulation


An autopsy of former NFL player Glenn Foster Jr., who was found dead in an Alabama prison earlier this month, suggested he may have been strangled or suffered neck trauma.

Foster died on December 6, two days after being arrested, for driving at least 90 mph in a 45 mph zone. Foster has been charged with reckless endangerment, resisting arrest and attempted escape on three counts.

Foster’s father, Robert Foster, Sr., said his son had previously experienced « manic » episodes and was a decade ago diagnosed with bipolar disorder. The father told the Washington Post Foster that he had an altercation in prison on December 5th and stopped responding the next day when he was transported in a Pickens County Sheriff’s transport between the prison and a nearby medical facility / p> Reports indicate that Foster may have been involved in a simple argument while in custody, but civil rights attorney Ben Crump and his attorneys say, according to Dr. Michael Baden, an internationally known coroner who performed an independent autopsy on Foster, could be more to the story.

In a statement to NewsOne, two of Crump’s co-advisors, Diandra Debrosse Zimmermann and Robert DiCello, said Foster’s death was not was due to natural causes.

« Glenn Foster Jr.’s death while he was in the care and custody of the Pickens County Sheriff did not occur naturally as the independent autopsy suggests that there was evidence gave on neck compressions and strangulation, ”said Zimmermann and DiCello. « As we investigate the case further, we learn that the death of Mr. Foster in Pickens County appears to be part of a troubling trend that black men are dying in the care of the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office. »

Crumps Legal Team, who previously represented the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and other victims of police violence, is now working to find out who was responsible for Foster’s death.
