Aurora’s independent investigation into Elijah McClain’s death

On Monday morning, Aurora city officials released the 157-page report of the independent investigation into the death of Elijah McClain after a violent encounter with city police and being reassured by paramedics.

The investigation found that Aurora police officers had no legal basis to force McClain to stop walking, searching him, or using a stranglehold on him.

The city hired a group of investigators to review the decisions of officers and paramedics and make policy recommendations “to reduce the likelihood of another tragedy like this,” the report said.
