It could be six weeks before the medical examiner can pinpoint the cause of death in the case of a man who died in Roanoke Police custody over the weekend.
Friday night police stopped Derek Poindexter around Boulevard and Patterson Avenue.
He was arrested for possession of crack cocaine.
When they got to the jail, a city police officer noticed Poindexter had something in his mouth... and used pepper spray to get him to spit it out.
Poindexter collapsed and died.
The Medical Examiner says he can't say why, until he gets a toxicology report.
