Man who tried to commit suicide beaten to death by police

`A man who tried to commit suicide by throwing himself onto the tracks of the Mexico City subway was later beaten to death by police, prosecutors said Saturday.

Mexico City attorney general’s office announced in a press statement that two city policemen who took custody of the man after he was removed from the tracks have been charged with homicide for allegedly beating him to death later in a patrol car. [..]

A forensic report showed the man died of blows to the chest and head that were not caused by his jumping onto the tracks.’
