Man Eats Cocaine From Brother's Butt, Dies

  1. mrsolearyscow
    A South Carolina man's brother died after police said he was forced to eat cocaine hidden in his brother's backside.

    Both brothers were taken into custody on allegations they had drugs in their car.

    But police told Charleston, S.C., TV station WCIV there were additional drugs hidden in 23-year-old Deangelo Mitchell's backside.

    Officers said Deangelo Mitchell convinced his brother, 20-year-old Wayne Mitchell, to swallow the ounce of cocaine to hide the evidence. He died soon afterward.

    "It's sickening," North Charleston Police Chief Jon Zumalt told WCIV. "I got upset when I saw the thing. I was pretty shocked on it."

    Deangelo Mitchell already bonded out of jail on the drug charge, but now police are looking for him again on charges of involuntary manslaughter.

    This is slightly less disgusting than the title implies; I was thinking of something far kinkier. Surely there are better ways of getting rid of evidence....

    AW: Man Eats Cocaine From Brother's Butt, Dies

    I assume he was in custody and didn't want it found with the good old cavity search. This is where family ties should be cut lol. Just say sorry bro your going to the pokey or you can swallow it yourself.

    good god !! an ounce ??? holy jesus!! and he willingly ate it ??? didnt he know he would die ?

    best article ever. I mean except for the tragedy.
  6. Nanashi
    This is horrible. I bet his brother is beating himself up about it..
    I can't even begin to imagine
  7. mrsolearyscow
    The sad thing is, it'd be tragic but not very newsworthy if the cocaine hadn't been up his brother's butt.

    My drugs go up my ass and down my throat because they are my drugs. That means I am responsible for them. I wouldn't have a child say, "hey sis, quick, take and raise this baby for me" just like I wouldn't say, "swallow this ounce of cocaine for me." The guy didn't even try to help out his brother. If he couldn't swallow it all himself or whatever they should have at least halved it or something.
  9. Potter
    wait, involuntary manslaughter? How stupid is this guy that they are giving him benefit of the doubt he knew how dangerous that was?
  10. iceflame
    I'm with beautyqueen, the logical thing to do would've been to share it....unless the other brother, the one now up on involuntary manslaughter, had an alterior motive.

    What I'm struggling with is did the incident of consuming the cocaine happen while they were both in custody? After questioning or before?

    I don't understand why the hell they weren't seperated.
  11. runnerupbeautyqueen
    Plus if the cops "knew" that the one brother had them in his bum, then they search his bum and find nothing, wouldn't the next logical step be an xray looking for what the cops know exist and just can't be found?

    Investigators: Eating cocaine from crack led to death, additional charges

    NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Police say one of two brothers pulled cocaine out of his butt. The other brother then ate it and died within the hour.

    Now, the brother who survived the ordeal is facing a charge of involuntary manslaughter.

    Police in North Charleston are looking for 23-year-old Deangelo Rashard Mitchell. He bonded out of jail on drug trafficking charges on December 1. Police say after toxicology results revealed his 20-year-old brother, Wayne Joshua Mitchell, died as a result of eating cocaine once in hidden in Deangelo's posterior, they have decided to pursue more serious charges.

    Investigators announced their plan to charge Denagelo Mitchell with manslaughter at a press conference on Monday.

    The Mitchell brothers were arrested on November 30. While in the back of the police car, officers say Deangelo pulled the drugs from his buttocks and convinced his brother Wayne to eat them.

    In a transcript taken from the in-car video, investigators said Deangelo told his brother, "You gonna eat it, you gotta chew it."

    Later, officers said Deangelo told his brother, "One of us gotta do it, you the only one that don't have any strikes. ...You my little brother... I'm gonna get life."

    When it was all said and done, officers say Wayne asked his brother to check his mouth.

    "How my mouth is? Love you bruh."

    The substance Wayne Mitchell ingested tested positive for cocaine. According to an incident report, his final moments were spent struggling to hold his head up and struggling to breathe. Officers said he had a blank look on his face and he was bleeding from his mouth when he was removed from the vehicle.

    A white, powdery residue was observed in the seat where Wayne sat beside his brother. Deangelo Mitchell told officers Wayne swallowed about an ounce of cocaine.

    Thank you very much Terrapinzflyer that thoroughly answered all my puzzling thoughts.

    Now I understand the events that took place leading to the brothers death.

    Shitty Christmas for that family :\

    Why anyone would ever swallow say even half that amount is beyond me. I get that it was to hid/rid themselves of any evidence but still. I bet it tasted more like fecal matter than it did anything else. (I know, disgusting to hear/say).

    Maybe, just MAYBE, I would swallow it if it was in something that completely would be able to safely pass through ones entire GI tract and be able to either come out your shooter or if it was possible to safely and successfully vomit it up. Either way, its most certainly worthy of being here under "Weird News"

    It's good we haven't completely excuded the human race from natural selection by technology.

    cops. they always remove themselves from any place of responsibility or understanding of the fear they put people through. i mean cocaine is cardiotoxic and all but still, a little bit wont kill you. whys drug abuse have to be this horrible thing to blame for peoples' actions who'd otherwise still do no better. when people take drugs in a society that has declared war on them, they decide to be outlaws and everything that comes with it oftentimes, even when the original notion of using drugs is just a simple reason like the freedom to experiment or to plainly make some money. cant people just get real.

    Poor younger brother. Not knowing what he was getting into. I hope the other brother does time. Asshole./
  20. Liltony420
    My later post was sarcasim, I do feel for the litttle bro. The older brother is a piece of shit imo, he already had a load of charges so no matter what he was going down, and I think its common knowledge amoung coke dealers that 28g is lethal. I'm glad there is no way the lil bro was concious for his painful death despite choking, he wouldn't have had any idea what was up down, left or unicorns.

    I think he should get life for being that selfish and I hope the image of his brother dying is the only thing he sees when he closes his eyes for the rest of his life.

    And where were the arresting officers during this? Im not a cop, but if i saw someone eat 28 grams of coke my fingers would be down their throat before the anesthesia kicked in.
