Reports: Sean Levert was restrained before death

Posted By on Wed, Apr 2, 2008 at 11:53 AM

You really didn’t think Sean Levert’s death would come to a tidy conclusion, did you? According to the latest reports, the R&B singer – who was in jail for failing to keep up with child-support payments when he died Sunday night – passed away while strapped to a restraining chair in the Cuyahoga County Jail’s psych ward. Apparently, Levert was moved to the psychiatric division after he began mumbling incoherently. He then became violent, so he was put in the chair. Monday’s autopsy revealed nothing. It could take another six weeks until toxicology reports are ready. Sean was the brother of Gerald (who died in November 2006), part of the O’Jays dynasty, and a member of ’80s hitmakers Levert, who scored their biggest hit in 1987 with “Casanova.” Give a listen below. -- Michael Gallucci
