Police Report on Eric Knysz Released

A police report is released on Eric Knysz. 

The Muskegon Chronicle obtained reports from the Michigan State Police surrounding Knysz's suicide. Many notes were written by him contemplating suicide and asking for forgiveness for killing Trooper Butterfield. He also wrote a note the day he was found dead in his prison cell in Jackson. According to the report, Knysz was found hanging from a light fixture with a towel tied around his face, covering his eyes. His final autopsy and toxicology reports are still pending but show no sign of trauma or injury... other than the mark around his neck. Knysz was officially pronounced dead on April 17th after being kept on life support for organ donation.
