Insufficient Evidence For Federal Charges In New Iberia Case
In the death of Victor White III the Justice Department announced Tuesday that there is insufficient evidence to pursue civil rights charges. White was arrested by an Iberia Parish Sheriff's deputy on March 2, 2014 after a disturbance at a convenience store. White was handcuffed behind his back, placed in a patrol car and taken to the Iberia Parish Correctional Center. While the patrol car was parked at the Correctional Center a gunshot was heard and deputies discovered that White had been shot. Deputies also found a .25 caliber gun in the back seat. Both of White's hands tested positive for gunshot residue. Autopsy results revealed that White died from a single gunshot to the chest.
