Questions Surround Man's Death while in custody of Dayton Police Department
Edited on Sun Jul-17-11 11:20 PM by votesparks
The Dayton Informer spoke with Dayton Citizen Kevin Young, who approached us at the Dayton Blues Fest, and wanted to talk about the death this past Saturday, July 16 of Kaylen English, age 20, while in the custody of the Dayton Police Department while being transported to the Montgomery County Jail on a burglary charge.

Police say that English jumped to his death after breaking out the back window of a police cruiser with his head, jumping out of the cruiser, and then jumping off of the Salem Avenue bridge.

Lt. Kim Hill said Dayton police were transporting the English, who was not initially identified, to the Montgomery County jail around 9:40 p.m

Dayton Police Lt. Kill Hill was quoted in the Dayton Daily News, On the bridge, the prisoner starts to bang his head against the (rear passenger) window, Hill said. The officer starts to pull over, and once he pulled over, the suspect had the window broken. He then went head-first out the window and headfirst over the bridge.

A search for any past criminal record English had turned up nothing on the Montgomery County Courts and Dayton Municipal Court Criminal Cases web site.

Lt. Hill said there would be a full investigation into the incident.

1. Reminds me of Casablanca
where the chief of police was writing his report and couldn't decide on whether a suspect commited suicide or was shot trying to escape.
