“The death of a man with Down syndrome who was reportedly killed after lying face-down in police custody has been ruled a homicide.
WJLA reports that Robert Saylor, 26, of New Market, Md., was asphyxiated on Jan. 12, according to a medical examiner’s ruling late last week.
A “law enforcement source familiar with the case” told the station that Saylor “went into distress when he was put face down on the ground.”
Police were reportedly called to a Frederick movie theater by employees who couldn’t get Saylor to leave. He had come to the theater with a health aide, paid admission for “Zero Dark Thirty,” but allegedly remained after it was over.
