Update: FBI to Possibly Probe Into The Death of Sean Levert

R&B singer Sean Levert’s family wants the FBI to look into his death after a jail medical emergency. Warden Kevin McDonough had described Levert as “out of control,” “hallucinating” and pounding on his cell door right before guards placed him in a restraining chair at Cuyahoga County jail. In contrary, Levert’s cousin, Michael Gibson, said he never had any outburst such as the type described by McDonough. The 39-year-old Levert died Sunday night at a hospital after he was taken from the county jail where he was serving a one year and 10 months sentence for failure to pay $89,025 in child support. An autopsy did not determine the cause of death. Toxicology tests are expected to take weeks. FBI spokesman Scott Wilson says agents would meet with Levert’s family.
