Autopsy Indicates No Foul Play

Choctaw County Sheriff James Lovette says autopsy results show that 42-year-old Monroe Thompson died from natural causes.

Thompson died around 2 a.m. April 23 after allegedly knocking on the door of a house in the Cromwell community and then fleeing.

Officials say he fell in the road about 100 yards from the house, hit his head and died.

Sheriff Lovette said charges are not expected to be filed in the case.

    After reading all of this if i was Sheriff Lovette i would not even be running for reelection. It seems to me that with all the idiots in Choctaw County it would just be easier to let them enforce there own laws since apparently they know more than the law enforcement officers do. To Sheriff Lovette good luck in your upcoming election, but remember the people of your county wont be happy until they have one of there own in charge.

    For all of you who know who committed the crime and are whining about the action taken, GO AND MAKE OUT PAPERS and name names, this will force an investigation into your allegations. Don't just sit around and feel sorry, TAKE ACTION -_- MAKE OUT THE LEGAL PAPERS and see what action is taken!!!!

    My question to all of these people is why is this the Sheriff's fault? Isn't the coroner the person in charge of all of this? I know this because i have common sense. Why would anybody want to cover up this man's death? Did the state Forensic Lab cover this up, did the coroner cover this up? NO!!! Now why would any of ya'll believe that the Sheriff covered anything up. Just use some common sense and realize nobody beat this man to death and nobody is to blame for this man's death.

    TO THE PEOPLE WITH THE NEGATIVE COMMENTS, YOU NEED TO KEEP THEM TO YOURSELF ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE PICTURES THAT WAS TAKEN HOURS AFTER HE WAS BEATEN TO DEATH. IF I COULD POST THEM ON HERE SOME OF YOU WOULD SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND THINK ABOUT THE FAMILY. IF YOU GO AROUND THE CROMWELL COMMUNITY EVERYBODY WOULD TELL YOU HE WAS BEATEN TO DEATH, AND GIVE YOU THE NAMES OF THEM TOO. IF ONE OF THE GUYS MOTHER IS TELLING PEOPLE THEN WHY IS IT SO HARD FOR "LOVETTE" TO INVESTIGATE????? LOVETTE, THERE IS NO NEED TO CAMPAIGN IN THE CROMWELL COMMUNITY BECAUSE YOU WILL GET NO VOTES FROM US!!!!!!!

    To Sharonika, I'm sorry your cousin died, but to call him a good man is a joke. He was a peeping tom who looked in women's windows all the time. He has had the law called on him numerous times for this offense. Honestly are ya'll dumb enough to believe that the autopsy is a cover up? Why would anybody want to cover this man dying up? He died of a myocardial infarction. (heart attack)for people like you. You are just another mindless person who believes the MAN is trying to hide something. Just letting you know we all know you weren't voting for Sheriff Lovette in the election anyway so I'm sure he will be so upset to find out he has lost your vote.

    James Lovett you that is a lie my cousin didn't just fall in no road and die you know who did it and you are not tryna find out what kind of sheriff are you if it was somebody in your family would you check it out then,if I was the sheriff and saw somebody relative to you I would just walk all over it like you did my cousin your a sorry excuse for a sheriff cause your doin your job who voted for you to be sheriff anyway cause your not doin your part. my cousin is dead and gone without anybody sayin goodbye its not good losin somebody that was part of your family,I KNOW SOMEONE KILLED MY COUSIN and they are goin to pay he was a good person and never did anything to anyone yeah he may have made mistakes but everybody do that but that still don't give anyone the right to kill him cause that was not right and all of ya'll know it. God will get you for what you did cause he don't like ugly and this was very ugly and low down

    I'm sure the Alabama crime lab that did the autopsy was just dying to cover up how he died. I personally think that the family should pay for the autopsy instead of the county you were told all along that their was no sign of foul play but you woluld not listen.Just ask the neighbors none of them thought anything of it. why don't you call the FBI and ask them to investigate the sheriff, coroner, and the Dept of forensic science since it is just one big cover up.
