Denver inmate’s death ruled homicide, result of being restrained by deputies
DENVER -- An autopsy has determined that an inmate held at the Downtown Detention Center died of asphyxia in November after being restrained by deputies. The medical examiner ruled the death a homicide and that he likely chocked on his own vomit. Michael Lee Marshall, 50, was restrained during “an acute psychotic episode” on Nov. 11, according to the medical examiner’s office.
