CLEVELAND, Miss. -- The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is continuing its investigation into the death of a 30-year-old Cleveland man who died after being jolted twice by police stun guns. Bolivar County Coroner Nathaniel Brown says Jermaine Williams died on July 23 after police used Tasers to subdue him. Brown tells The Bolivar Commercial that Williams was hit in the back and front of his body. He says toxicology results are pending. The Cleveland Police Department recently started using the Taser X26. A Taser shoots a probe that delivers a shock.

Latest news is that this death is being solely attributed to the taser. Pending toxicology results, drugs may be determined to be a contributing factor. "Cardiac arrhymia due to application of taser."

It's nice that Taser International's influence is waning. They can do nothing about this conclusion, except squeal. Everyone now knows that tasers can sometimes cause death. For example, this one.
