Authorities investigate man's death at Milwaukee Co. Mental Health Complex

by

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Prosecutors and state health officials have joined police agencies in investigating a man’s death at the Milwaukee County Mental Health Complex.

Officials said 25-year-old Brandon Johnson died last Saturday from a broken neck which caused a blood clot to form in one of his legs. It traveled up to his lungs, and Johnson suffered a pulmonary embolism as a result.

According to sheriff’s investigators, Milwaukee Police were called to a home October 3rd where a man was acting irrationally – and he was in handcuffs and leg irons when he was admitted to the county’s Behavioral Health Division.

Johnson died at the facility last weekend. He was the fifth patient to die at Milwaukee’s Mental Health Complex this year.

District Attorney John Chisholm said Thursday that his office has joined the investigation by sheriff’s deputies and Milwaukee Police.

The state health services department’s Quality Assurance Division is also investigating. And Johnson’s relatives said they’ve hired an attorney to look into the death on their behalf.
