Oklahoma Inmate's Death No Longer Considered A Homicide (Video)

Earlier this year, Opposing Views reported on the mysterious death of an inmate at Lawton Correctional Facility in Oklahoma. Many suspected foul play after it was discovered that the inmate, 33-year-old Christopher Glass, had called 911 six different times prior to being found dead in his jail cell.

Reports claimed that Glass’s voice had never actually been heard in any of the calls, but in one, an unidentified voice could be heard saying, “Whether or not you’re a dead man. Just hang up.”

Now, police have determined that the cause of Glass’s death was an overdose of methamphetamines. Glass was found unresponsive in his cell on Jan. 20, and police have finally concluded their investigation in conjunction with the state medical examiner’s office.

Authorities say that there isn’t enough evidence to conclude that the inmate’s death was a homicide and that the methamphetamine overdose in addition to a preexisting condition are what killed the man.

Still, reports do say that police are willing to reopen the investigation if they receive new information that points to a homicide.
