Victor White III

An autopsy for Victor White III, 22, the Louisiana man who police said shot and killed himself in March while handcuffed in the backseat of a sheriff’s car, was really shot in the chest, according to the Iberia Parish Coroner’s Office.

According to the autopsy, “the bullet entered White’s chest, then perforated his left lung and heart before exiting his armpit area and lacerating his upper arm.”

Police: Chavis Carter, While Handcuffed, Shot Himself In The Head

As previously reported by NewsOne, White was allegedly involved  in an altercation and when deputies responded to the call they claim to have found illegal drugs on him which lead to his arrest.

According to authorities, White was in handcuffs with his hands behind his back when he was killed, allegedly by his own gun — which conveniently wasn’t found during the search that led to his arrest.

They claimed that once they arrived at the sheriff’s office, White refused to exit the vehicle, instead producing the gun and shooting himself once in the back.

This how now been determined to be false.

As previously reported by NewsOne, this isn’t the first time that a handcuffed Black man has died under suspicious circumstances.

In August 2012, Chavis Carter, a 21-year-old Mississippi man, was shot to death in the back of a Jonesboro, Ark. Police Department squad car. Police claim that he pulled the trigger even though he was handcuffed and shot on the right side of the head.

Carter’s mother said her son was left-handed.

The investigation into White’s death, which is still being designated a suicide, is still under investigation and State Police Master Trooper Brooks David said there will be no comment.
