Orleans Parish Coroner Frank Minyard says he doesn't have any new evidence that would make him change the death certificate to "homicide" for a man who was shot and burned by New Orleans police after Hurricane Katrina. That means the cause of Henry Glover's death remains officially undetermined.
Glover's aunt, Rebecca Glover, hopes coroner-elect Jeffery Rouse will re-open the case when his term begins in May.
The officer who shot Glover has been acquitted on federal charges. Other officers were accused of covering up the killing. One was convicted; his case is under appeal.
Minyard says there's no new scientific evidence and the U.S. Attorney's Office and FBI declined to give his office additional evidence to re-evaluate the case. Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell declined to get involved.
