An independent autopsy into the death of George Floyd found that the unarmed black found his death was a "homicide caused by asphyxia due to neck and back compression that led to a lack of blood flow to the brain," according to attorney Ben Crump.

Crump stated Floyd was "dead on the scene" in Minneapolis on May 25.
