Baltimore City State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby was expected to hold a press conference Friday about her office's investigation into the death of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old African-American who died in police custody after suffering a spinal injury more than two weeks ago. Mosby's office did not release details ahead of the press conference on Friday morning. The city medical examiner said it turned over an autopsy report to Mosby's officer on Friday.

On Thursday, Mosby confirmed that her office had received copies of the Baltimore Police Department's investigative report into Gray's April 12 arrest and the cause of his death one week later. Baltimore police officials said they concluded their investigation on Thursday.
"However, the results of their investigation is not new to us," she said in a statement. "We have been briefed regularly throughout their process while simultaneously conducting our own independent investigation into the death of Freddie Gray. While we have and will continue to leverage the information received by the Department, we are not relying solely on their findings but rather the facts that we have gathered and verified. We ask for the public to remain patient and peaceful and to trust the process of the justice system."
Cops in riot gear and national guard heading to penn & north? Autopsy about to be released? Coincidence? Probably not.
