DENVER (KKTV) - An amended autopsy for Elijah McClain was released to the public on Friday after he died following an incident with first responders in Aurora in 2019.

According to an amended autopsy report publicly released, McClain’s death is still listed as undetermined. The 23-year-old massage therapist was put in a neck hold and injected with ketamine after being stopped in Aurora for “being suspicious.”

A Colorado grand jury indicted three officers and two paramedics on manslaughter and reckless homicide charges in McClain’s death. The five suspects have not entered a plea, as of Friday.

The case drew national attention following the killing of George Floyd in 2020.
