In 2003 Clayton Willey was arrested by RCMP officers in Prince George for causing a disturbance a few hours later he lay dead. A coroners inquest in 2004 ruled his death was the result of a heart attack brought on by a cocaine overdose. This despite the fact that Clayton was pepper sprayed, beaten dragged through the detachment striking his head several times off the cruiser, the concrete floor and more than one door jamb plus he was tasered multiple times while laying face down his hands cuffed behind his back and his feet hogtied.
The inquest discounted the tasering as a contributing factor. The first witness in the inquest, Dr. James McNaughton, said high
cocaine abuse contributed to Willey's death and not anything the police
did. The pathologist noted Willey suffered a severe heart attack 20
minutes after he was hit with a Taser on the day he died. McNaughton
says a shorter interval of time between the two incidents would be
needed to make a connection.
We have since learned that he was in fact tasered simultaneously by two officers which to this laypersons mind anyways puts the coroners ruling into question even though the The Commission for Public Complaints against the RCMP just yesterday re-affirmed the coroners ruling although they did say cops did fail to treat Willey with decency.
