However, she said she cannot release the amended report because of a court order and oath she was required to take in January 2021, which bars her from revealing any information from the grand jury.
“The Attorney General’s Office has informed me that the Amended Autopsy Report therefore contains confidential information that is covered by the Court’s Order and my Oath,” Broncucia-Jordan said in a statement.
The original autopsy report listed the cause of McClain’s death as “undetermined.” The coroner’s office has not said when it received evidence that prompted a change to the autopsy, and it’s unclear when the autopsy report was amended.
Broncucia-Jordan says her “hands are tied” by the judge’s order, but she hopes to be able to release the report in the future. “Once I have authorization from that Court to release the Autopsy Report, I will gladly do so,” she said in the statement.
