Lee Merritt said : “so much mystery and unanswered questions in a way that violates every policy and procedure the state has,” "It’s not uncommon to remove body parts in an autopsy in order to perform a test. The only thing that’s highly uncommon is to not know where they are”. A year later, Palmer’s family still has questions about what happened, and are pursuing both criminal and civil cases. The Pennsylvania State Police York Station is conducting an investigation in conjunction with the York County district attorney, according to PSP spokesman Brent Miller. Both offices declined to comment, citing the ongoing nature of the case. Dwayne Palmer said his brother went to Pennsylvania to clear up a DUI warrant from Lancaster County, before traveling to New York to see his sick mother. When he arrived, at some point police saw a suspension on his license and he was sent to York County Prison, said Dwayne Palmer. After that, what happened to Everett Palmer becomes more mysterious. According to the York County coroner’s report and autopsy results , Palmer was being held in a single cell at York County Prison on April 9, 2018, when he “became agitated and began hitting his head against the inside of his cell door”. Officers “restrained” Palmer, but after the incident, he was taken to the prison’s clinic and was “noted to be unresponsive”. Staff tried to resuscitate Palmer, and he was transferred to York Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 5:46 a.m. The coroner’s office ruled his official cause of death as “complication following an excited state, associated with methamphetamine toxicity, during physical restraint”. A sickle-cell disorder was said to be a probable contributing factor. The manner of death was undetermined. The family hired an independent pathologist, who first flagged the missing organs and said the manner of death should be considered a homicide, Merritt said. Chief Deputy Coroner Claude Stabley declined to comment on Palmer’s death because the case is “still under investigation" External link

Lee Merritt said : “so much mystery and unanswered questions in a way that violates every policy and procedure the state has,” "It’s not uncommon to remove body parts in an autopsy in order to perform a test. The only thing that’s highly uncommon is to not know where they are”. A year later, Palmer’s family still has questions about what happened, and are pursuing both criminal and civil cases. The Pennsylvania State Police York Station is conducting an investigation in conjunction with the York County district attorney, according to PSP spokesman Brent Miller. Both offices declined to comment, citing the ongoing nature of the case. Dwayne Palmer said his brother went to Pennsylvania to clear up a DUI warrant from Lancaster County, before traveling to New York to see his sick mother. When he arrived, at some point police saw a suspension on his license and he was sent to York County Prison, said Dwayne Palmer. After that, what happened to Everett Palmer becomes more mysterious. According to the York County coroner’s report and autopsy results , Palmer was being held in a single cell at York County Prison on April 9, 2018, when he “became agitated and began hitting his head against the inside of his cell door”. Officers “restrained” Palmer, but after the incident, he was taken to the prison’s clinic and was “noted to be unresponsive”. Staff tried to resuscitate Palmer, and he was transferred to York Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 5:46 a.m. The coroner’s office ruled his official cause of death as “complication following an excited state, associated with methamphetamine toxicity, during physical restraint”. A sickle-cell disorder was said to be a probable contributing factor. The manner of death was undetermined. The family hired an independent pathologist, who first flagged the missing organs and said the manner of death should be considered a homicide, Merritt said. Chief Deputy Coroner Claude Stabley declined to comment on Palmer’s death because the case is “still under investigation" External link
