FBI Forbids Release of Ibragim Todashev's Autopsy

The FBI, as you will recall, unexplainedly shot to death an unarmed man it had in its custody. The subject, Ibragim Todashev, was being questioned about a triple homicide that he and Boston Marathon Bomber, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, were thought to have committed. As he was about to sign a statement he was shot to death. The FBI gave two or three versions of the event and then went silent. If I'm not mistaken this is the same FBI that is yet to contact a single complaining witness in the IRS targeting of conservative groups, the same FBI that took three weeks to get to the consulate in Benghazi, the same FBI was warned about Tamerlan Tsarnaev to no avail and the same FBI that was complicit in the murder of two men by Boston hooligan Whitey Bulger.
There was a mysterious witness in the shooting of Todashev who was mysteriously deported. An immigration judge ruled that the young lady, Tatiana Igorevna Gruzdeva, was to remain in jail until her deportation and thus unavailable to the nosey press or the Council on American-Islamic Relations which has taken an interest in the death of Todashev. I wrote about this on another blog.
Today the FBI ordered a Florida medical examiner’s office not to release its autopsy report of Todashev's murder? shooting.
“The FBI has informed this office that the case is still under active investigation and thus not to release the document,” Tony Miranda, forensic records coordinator for Orange and Osceola counties in Orlando, said in a letter to the media today. Miranda said state law bars his office from releasing the report if an criminal investigation is ongoing.
So the ongoing investigation is criminal? The Council on American-Islamic Relations and the ACLU have called for independent inquiries into the shooting. Could Angela Corey be of any assistance? Did Florida's "stand your ground law" contribute to Todashev death inasmuch as Eric Holder says such laws invite violence? Or is it time we had a national dialogue on gun violence as Obama suggests?
Stay tuned. The medical examiner's office said it would check with the FBI every month for permission to release the autopsy report, and that such delays most frequently happen with homicide cases. Homicide? Can't this wait until after the 2014 mid-term elections?
