Glover family: state should investigate coroner

1 year ago January 20, 2014 Jan 20, 2014 Monday, January 20 2014 Monday, January 20, 2014 7:26:02 AM EST in News

NEW ORLEANS - The family of a man who was shot and his body burned by New Orleans police say the coroner is dragging his feet on their request to classify the death as a homicide.

Henry Glover's family said Saturday that they're asking state Attorney General Buddy Caldwell to look at Dr. Frank Minyard's recent actions.

Caldwell's office did not immediately respond Sunday to a request for comment.

Minyard said Wednesday that he's asking Caldwell whether he can consider non-forensic evidence such as trial testimony and photographs.

Former officer David Warren has testified that he shot at Glover. Other officers burned a car with Glover's body in it.

Minyard says the problem is lack of forensic evidence of homicide. He agreed to reopen the case after Glover's family protested at his office.
