The Tangipahoa Parish coroner says a man who had been jailed for almost two weeks died of natural causes and not from being beaten while in custody.

The Advocate reports 69-year-old Dave Berwick of Ponchatoula died in July from sepsis and pneumonia.

The FBI launched an investigation into Berwick's death following news reports and social media posts that suggested he had been beaten while in custody, allegations vehemently denied by Sheriff Daniel Edwards.
