WAUKEGAN, Ill. — The Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office found no wrongdoing by Waukegan police in the “in-custody” death of a man last summer.

Lake County State’s Attorney Michael Nerheim considers the case closed after sending a letter to Waukegan Police Chief Wayne Walles.

The man, 31-year-old Avion Cotton, passed away after he was arrested in the 600 block of King Avenue on June 27, 2019.

In the letter, Nerheim said Cotton swallowed 38 grams of cocaine laced with fentanyl.
