MIAMI (AP) - U.S. immigration officials have found no pre-existing health problems that might have contributed to the death of a Haitian man who suffered cholera-like symptoms after being deported to his Caribbean homeland.
Wildrick Guerrier died Jan. 29 in Haiti. He was among the first Haitians deported by the U.S. since a catastrophic earthquake in January 2010.
Guerrier was among 22 Haitian detainees who refused to eat meals at a Louisiana detention center for six days before his deportation Jan. 20. A review of his medical records by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement failed to show any significant medical problems that may have contributed to his death.
The Associated Press obtained the medical review and other records pertaining to Guerrier's 109 days in immigration custody through a Freedom of Information Act request.
