Medical examiner revises suspect's death ruling to homicide

After a 10-month effort for records following the death of Derek Williams in Milwaukee police custody, the Journal-Sentinel alerted an assistant medical examiner with the county, who changed the ruling of the death from natural to homicide. The records include a vidoe of Williams suffocating and pleading for help from the back of a squad car, and the Jounral-Sentinel also alerted the medical examiner of a national expert who said the 22-year-old Williams did not die naturally of sickle cell crisis.
