Last month (September 2013), VolusiaExposed ran the below linked article in which we again highlighted our earlier concerns, from March 2012, of Volusia County officials handling the Trayvon Martin autopsy.

In our opinion, Dr. Shiping Bao's involvement in both the Martin and Brown autopsies, coupled with his termination from county employment, and his now vocal allegations of misconduct by the Volusia Medical Examiner's office, exposes the under belly of corruption that runs through the Volusia County Department of Public Protection.

Veracity Allegations Within The Medical Examiner's Office
Have Been A Common Theme For Years

Willie Towns and Tracy Veira Autopsies are two examples

The Medical Examiner's Office is a division within the Volusia County Department of Public Protection. The Department of Public Protection incorporates several other divisions within county government to include fire services, the county jail and beach patrol.

VolusiaExposed.Com has, in the past, expressed our conflict of interest concerns attached to Volusia County operating the medical examiner's office, especially within a county department, that also incorporates law enforcement functions (jail and beach patrol). In many Florida jurisdictions, the medical examiner's office is a state office, rather than a county office. Volusia County government incorporated the medical examiner's office into county government via it's self rule county charter.

Willie Towns
March 2005 Death

Taser Excluded As Cause Of Death?

In March 2005, the police chased and tased a mentally ill Willie Towns, due to their suspicions of his involvement in some car break ins. Mr. Towns died shortly thereafter in police custody. It was later determined that Mr. Towns had no involvement in the break ins.

As is documented in Howard E. Williams' book titled "Taser Electronic Control Devices and Sudden In-Custody Death - Separating Evidence From Conjecture"
, the Volusia County Medical Examiner's Office ruled that Mr. Towns died due to "acute cocaine intoxication", and that the taser was eliminated as the cause, or as a significant causing factor in Mr. Towns death. The medical examiner's report further suggested that the body blows delivered by the police, or the application of pepper spray did not contribute to Mr. Towns death.

Apparently, if one is to place their faith into the Volusia County Medical Examiner's autopsy of Mr. Towns - one must accept that the body blows, pepper spraying and tasing of Mr. Towns had little to no contributing factors into the cause of his death.

According to Mr. Williams, the Volusia County autopsy ruled that Mr. Towns died of "Acute Cocaine Intoxication". Basically, DeLand PD had the mis-fortune of tasing a walking dead man. Apparently, absent his police beating and tasing, Mr. Town was going to die that day of acute cocaine intoxication.

Tracy Veira
September 2009 Death

In-Custody Jail Death

In September 2009, 28 year old Tracy Veira died in a medical segregation cell at the Volusia County Correctional Facility.

Records indicate that Ms. Veira, the mother of two young children was on a special medical watch, as she was going through substance detoxification.

Correctional Officers were documenting that they were checking on Ms. Veira every fifteen (15) minutes, in fact some of the last documented entries indicate that Ms. Veira was actively communicating with the officers. Unfortunately, when Ms. Veira was discovered to be deceased, rigor mortis had already started to set in. According to VCSO Investigator Campanella's initial report, such rigor mortis was not consistent with the jail officers' documented entries of interacting / communicating with Ms. Veira. Further, according to Campanella's initial report, members of the Volusia County Medical Examiner's office concurred with his observations and concerns.

While Investigator Campanella states in his initial report that he intended to follow up on these inconsistencies, his final report does not even mention them (inconsistencies).

Why didn't Investigator Campanella follow up with his concerns surrounding those inconsistencies between Ms. Veira's state of rigor mortis and the jail officers' last documented observations? Could such an investigative conclusion have brought both criminal and civil liability to county government / staff?

Our Final Thoughts
Oh, what a tangled web we weave: When first we practice to deceive!

It would appears to us (VolusiaExposed.Com) that with all of Volusia County's attempts to "investigate" these deaths, in order to discover the truth, and thusly reduce civil liability - the investigations themselves have invited liability to come knocking on the county's door !
