MOORE, Okla. –  The Cleveland County District Attorney’s office confirmed it has the findings from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation on Luis Rodriquez’s death while in custody.

Officials said the DA may decide whether or not to file charges until at least the end of the month.

“The OSBI prosecution report was delivered to the Cleveland County District Attorney’s Office and the Moore Police Department this morning by the case agent,” according to Jessica Brown with the OSBI.

Luis Rodriguez was being arrested by several Moore police officers last February in Moore when he died in custody.

The medical examiner ruled the death was a homicide but no one has been arrested or charged in connection with his death.

Michael Brooks-Jimenez said, “A 44-year-old man does not pass away if reasonable force is used.”

Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agents have been interviewing witnesses and gathering evidence in the case, including the cell phone video and the parking lot surveillance video from the Moore Warren Theater.

Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn says he will release the surveillance video once the investigation is complete.

“The case is still a work in progress,” said OSBI spokesperson Jessica Brown. “We don’t put a timeline on our investigations.”

According to Mashburn the OSBI is in the final stages of their investigation.

Mashburn says he will make it his top priority to review the OSBI’s report and make a decision on criminal charges.
