JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A medical examiner's autopsy reports a Tennessee man died of accidental "complications of LSD toxicity" in police custody in Mississippi.

The Mississippi medical examiner's autopsy report for 30-year-old Troy Goode of Memphis was posted online Tuesday by WMC-TV ( ). Public Safety Department spokesman Warren Strain confirmed its authenticity to The Associated Press.

The autopsy was conducted July 20, two days after Goode died in Southaven police custody at a hospital in that Memphis suburb. The report contradicts independent autopsy results released last month by an attorney for Goode's family, which found he died from being hog-tied.

Southaven police say they arrested Goode after he ran from his vehicle while he and his wife were on their way to a Widespread Panic concert. His attorney says Goode took a small amount of LSD before the arrest.
