Georgia Medical Examiner Resigns After Ruling That A Black Man Di’ed From Natural Causes Before A Fu’neral Home Discovered He Was Mu’rdered

The family of Ray Anthony Neal knew something was off when a medical examiner ruled he di’ed from natural cau’ses. For starters, he was found in facedown in a pool of his own blo’od in his #Lawrenceville, Georgia, residence this past weekend.

Cops also found blo’od spla’ttered everywhere including his bed, the bathroom walls and even on a shower curtain. But when an investigator from the medical examiner’s office arrived, she took all of 10 minutes to determine that the 61-year-old had di’ed of natural causes, @washingtonpost reports.

While Neal did have a history of health problems, such as high blo’od pressure and liver problems, family members were con’vinced that none of those conditions k’illed him. Days later, it was revealed that Neal had actually been stabbed to death after a fu’neral home employee discovered st’ab wounds.

After the fu’neral home employee, who happened to be a coroner in another county, discovered the st’ab wound, the medical examiner’s officer performed a formal autopsy confirming the family’s sus’picions.

“The in’juries are now believed to be st’ab wounds,” po’lice said in a statement.

Officials said that because the investigator was informed that Neal had medical conditions, she had chosen to “minimize exposure to pathogens that were potentially present at the scene.” As a result, she claims she didn’t notice his inj’uries.

That inves’tigator has now “been allowed to resign,” Gwinnett County Medical Examiner’s Office Chief Investigator Eddie Reeves told WXIA on Wednesday. She was identified as Shannon Byers.

Smalls, who is hoping that po’lice can find her brother’s apparent k’iller, said Byers’ attempt to explain the amount of blo’od found throughout the house never added up.

“The explanation that she gave [was] that his arteries b’urst and come through,” she told WGCL. “That’s a lot. Your body don’t create that much pressure to bu’rst through your skin from the inside.”

Roommates, we hope this family gets the justice they are looking for in this case. We will keep you posted on any updates.
