Caretaker told deputies not to touch Saylor, or he would 'freak out.'
Frederick, Md. (ap) - There is new information about the asphyxiation death of a man with down syndrome while he was being forcibly removed from a Frederick movie theater by three sheriff's deputies moonlighting as mall security officers.
The Frederick County Sheriff's Office released its 98-page incident report Monday on the January death of 26-year-old Robert Ethan Saylor.
Saylor's 18-year-old caretaker says in a written statement that she told the deputies not to touch or speak to Saylor because he would "freak out."
She says a deputy insisted that Saylor had to leave because he hadn't paid for a second viewing of the movie, "Zero Dark Thirty."
Saylor died after he was handcuffed and taken down. A grand jury declined to indict the deputies for what the State Medical Examiner's Office had ruled a homicide.
