Autopsy Report Reveals Lockett Did Not Die of a Heart Attack

CREATED Aug 29, 2014

 OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) An autopsy report on an Oklahoma inmate who died following a troubled execution concludes he succumbed to the lethal drugs he was administered. But an attorney for death row inmates says it doesn't explain why Clayton Lockett writhed and moaned before he was pronounced dead more than 40 minutes after his execution began. Department of Corrections Director Robert Patton had said Lockett died from a heart attack after he ordered the execution halted.
