Cause of death: Suffocation during restraint

When Kevin argued with his mother and family members, they called the police. By the time they got there he had calmed down and was sitting on a couch. But Kevin’s sister insisted he should be taken to a crisis treatment center, and Kevin started to stand up.

Police threw him to the floor and pushed him down, restraining him so that he stopped breathing. This caused hypoxic brain damage. Kevin spent twenty-four days in a coma before he died.
