The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office performed a “cause of death” autopsy today and did indeed rule the cause of death to be “death by multiple blunt force injuries.”
Although the death has been ruled an accident at this time, the driver of the vehicle was taken into custody according to Mr. Hanania.
