FBI To Look Into Levert's Death
He had been serving a 22-month prison sentence for failing to pay $89,025 in child support to the mother of his kids.
On Tuesday, prison warden Kevin McDonough revealed how Levert had to be physically restrained by guards, because he had been pounding on his cell door.
McDonough claims Levert "willingly" co-operated with staff, but after being strapped to a restraining chair, his breathing slowed and he was rushed to hospital for treatment.
But Levert's cousin Michael Gibson claims the outburst described by McDonough was out of character for his relative, and the family has called in the authorities to look into the case.
Scott Wilson, a spokesman for the FBI, has confirmed agents are to meet with the Levert family to discuss the case further.
The Cuyahoga County Coroner is currently waiting on results from toxicology tests after an initial autopsy proved inconclusive.
