Israel Berrios-Berrios who
pleaded guilty in court on
Thursday was arrested on May

A coroner s report obtained exclusively by
NBC News directly contradicts the police ver-
sion of how a 22-year-old black man died in
the back seat of a Louisiana police cruiser
earlier this year, but still says the man, whose

And yet, despite the contradictions---and
even though White s hands were never tested
