A wake for singer Sean Levert,who died on March 30th, was held last Thursday and Friday at E.F. Boyd Sons Funeral in Cleveland, Ohio.Sean died at the Lutheran Hospital in Ohio shortly after being removed from Cuyahoga County jail where he was being incarcerated for having $85,000 in unpaid Child support Payments.
Levert, 39, died just before midnight Mar. 30 at Lutheran Hospital. He was taken there from the Cuyahoga County after guards said Levert was pounding on his cell door and had to be placed in a restraining chair for his own safety. Levert’s breathing became weak while he was in the chair so he was taken to the hospital.
The Cuyahoga County Coroner’s Office ruled out foul play or trauma in Levert’s death and also performed toxicology tests on the body. The autopsy was completed Monday but the test results won’t be back for four to six weeks.
The Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s office also is investigating the circumstances surrounding the jail incident. The family has told the media that they also want the FBI to investigate the circumstances surrounding Levert’s death.
