After the death of a 19-year-old from Delmenhorst, the body was autopsied on Sunday. The public prosecutor’s office in Oldenburg rules out external violence as a cause of death.

A spokesman for the authority announced on Monday that this is the preliminary result of the forensic medical examination. The cause of the death of the man is still unclear. According to the information, a toxicological assessment was commissioned, among other things. When the results will be available is still open, so the prosecutor. A spokesman for the police told that new findings are expected in the course of the week. Until then, no further information could be released. For reasons of neutrality, the Oldenburg-Stadt / Ammerland police station has taken over the investigation.

Police violence speculation on social media

As NDR 1 Lower Saxony reports, there is talk of disproportionate police violence against the man of Yazidi belief and wild speculation in the social networks. The chairman of the Yezidi Congregation, Elias Yanc, now called in a video message to hold back. One should wait for the results of the prosecution, so Yanc. The police spokesman said the officers were keeping an eye on the rumors online.

Scuffle when arrested in the wool park

According to the information, the young man died on Saturday evening in an Oldenburg hospital. Civilian officers from the Delmenhorst police caught him consuming narcotics in the Delmenhorster wool park early on Friday evening. The 19-year-old tried to flee, but was caught a few meters later. This resulted in a scuffle in which the suspect hit a police officer twice in the head. The policeman then used pepper spray. The two of them finally succeeded in overpowering the man. Because they had used pepper spray, they routinely alerted the ambulance service. According to the information, however, the 19-year-old refused treatment. According to information from NDR 1 Lower Saxony, a friend of the deceased, who is said to have been an eyewitness to the incident, contradicts this.

Collapsed in detention cell

The officials took the 19-year-old to the office. A standby judge ordered a blood sample to be taken. The police held the young man in a detention cell until the doctor arrived. There they then watched via video surveillance as he suddenly collapsed in the cell. According to the information, the officials alerted an emergency doctor and initiated rescue measures themselves until he arrived. By the time the collapsed man was taken to the hospital, his condition was already critical.
