Vincent Jackson: Sheriff Jumped The Gun Announcing Autopsy Results

Vincent Jackson: Sheriff Jumped The Gun Announcing Autopsy Results! previously reported that Vincent Jackson was found dead in his hotel room, but wait until you hear what the family of Vincent Jackson is saying. Read on for more details surrounding Vincent Jackson Autopsy Results… reports that around 11:30 a.m. ET Monday morning, Vincent Jackson‘s body was discovered by a housekeeper.

As we previously reported Vincent Jackson was found dead in a Florida hotel room Monday morning, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office announced. He was 38.

Seems the Sheriff may have jumped the gun by announcing the autopsy results on Wednesday — because a rep for Jackson’s family says they were told the official autopsy report will not be completed for weeks.

Here’s the statement from the Jackson family:

The official autopsy of Vincent Jackson has not been completed and the family has been told the full autopsy report will not be available for weeks.

The reports that the Sheriff publicly claim alcohol was a factor before the report was complete. We’re told other officials working the case were also baffled by his decision to reveal the information before the autopsy is formally completed.

The Sheriff announced this week, that Ex-NFL star Vincent Jackson “suffered from chronic alcoholism,” but now that conclusion may NOT be correct.

Sheriff Chad Chronister of the Hillsborough Sheriff’s Office in Florida revealed the findings from Jackson’s autopsy Wednesday on the “MJ Morning Show” saying:

We got the autopsy report that will be released today showed, unfortunately, he suffered from chronic alcoholism. Just tragic!

Sheriff Chronister says officials are still waiting on the toxicology report to come back before they can issue an official cause of death — but he notes Jackson had “long-standing health conditions that contributed to his passing because of some alcohol abuse.”

Basically, the announcement was premature.

What is tragic is that the 38-year-old NFL wide receiver was discovered Monday by a housekeeper at the Homewood Suites hotel in Brandon, Florida (located in the Tampa area) … where he had been living since January.

The whole situation was bizarre considering Jackson made more than $70 million in his NFL career and was widely loved in the community by family, friends, and law enforcement.

His body was said to be found after two days. According to reports, the housekeeper thought he was just sleeping in the chair in the room. It was reported that Jackson was slumped over in the hotel chair for two days before the housekeeper checked to see if he was breathing.

His last post on social media was on Jan 24th:
