No Wrongdoing Found In Professor’s Jail Death

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (February 24, 2014) Internal investigations by the Connecticut Judicial Branch and New Haven police found no wrongdoing by authorities in the arrest and detention of a Yale University professor who died in November 2013 in a jail cell.

The medical examiner's office ruled last month that Samuel See died of acute methamphetamine and amphetamine intoxication with a recent heart attack.

It said his death was an accident.

See, 34, was taken to jail after officers responded to a report of domestic dispute.

Police say See was found unresponsive the next day in his cell at the New Haven detention facility.

The judicial investigation concluded marshals followed procedures and there was no evidence that See's death was the result of negligence or inattention.

A police inquiry found no violations of department rules or orders.
