Chief Apologizes In Professor’s Death

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ New Haven’s police chief has apologized for a three-day delay in releasing information about the death of a Yale University professor while in detention.
Chief Dean Esserman said in an email the delay in announcing the death of Samuel See was below department standards and police will work to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

The 34-year-old See was an assistant professor of English and American studies. He was charged with violating a protective order, threatening and interfering with police.

Police announced Nov. 27 he was found unresponsive in his cell at the detention facility the previous Sunday.   Police say during his arrest See and officers fell and See was cut above his left eye.   The Medical Examiner ruled out trauma as a cause of death. A toxicology report is pending.
