Coroner releases cause of death of Loft Cove suspect


EVANSVILLE, Ind (WEHT) The coroner has released the autopsy of a 20-year-old Newburgh man who died in custody Wednesday. The autopsy shows that Evan Terhune died from a subdural hemorrhage from blunt force trauma to the head.

Terhune was detained after police were called to a house party last Saturday night at Loft Cove for what they originally thought was a break in. Police now believe Terhune and other partygoers were abusing narcotics before he began acting erratically and was forced out of the apartment.

Police say he continued acting erratically while in custody and can be seen on video banging his head and jumping around inside the transport van.
