According to a post-mortem examination report seen by the Rochester-based Democrat and Chronicle newspaper, Mr Prude's death was a homicide caused by "complications of asphyxia in the setting of physical restraint".
Oh, here we go again, eh?
Police body camera footage obtained through a public records request shows Mr Prude, who had been running naked through the streets in a light snow before police arrived, lying unarmed as officers restrain him on the ground.
Hmmm. Odd behaviour, isn't it?
Mr Prude's brother, Joe, called police in Rochester, New York, on 23 March as his sibling was suffering from acute mental health problems.
Mr Prude told officers he was infected with coronavirus, and they placed a "spit hood" over his head, which is meant to protect police from suspects' saliva.
The report also listed PCP, a strong hallucinogenic drug, as a complication.What's the world coming to when a black man in America can't take horse tranquilizers, run naked in the snow and spit at police trying to restrain him to take him to a mental health facility?
