D.A. Hummel Seeks Independent Review of Inmate's Death

Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel is seeking an independent review of a recent inmate's death.

 

Hummel has requested that the Oregon Department of Justice investigate the death of 31 year old Edwin Mays.

 

He died while in custody last December 14th.

 

The State Medical Examiner has concluded that Mr. Mays died from a methamphetamine overdose.

 

Hummel feels its best for all involved -- the Mays family, the public and involved law enforcement that an outside agency conduct a comprehensive review of the incident.
