CID Report (Death): 0016-04-CID789-83983

CID investigation into the manner of death of detainee Fathel Ibrahim Mahmood at the Baghdad, Central Confinement Facility, Abu Ghraib, Iraq. Mr. Mahmood experienced chest pains and was discovered unresponsive when medical personnel arrived at his cell. He was pronounced dead soon after. There was no autopsy conducted or investigation at the scene of the incident. Prior to the incident, detainee had complained of pains in his chest and shortness of breath and was given medical attention and medication by Army medics. The CID report acknowledges that there is the possibility of medical negligence, but determines that there were no criminal acts committed. An earlier draft of the report lists cause of death as cardio and pulmonary arrest, but the final report states that the cause of death is undetermined.

Leave it undetermined. If all the leads are complete, close and publish the final supplemental. Did you get a death cert from the doc who declared him? That's something CID CMD is bouncing cases back for. I've aot a list of them that are going to be sent back to the field to do exactly that. You've got two of them, 0013-04 and 0040-04, both of them are from riots where detainees were justifiably shot. You'll need to get DC's ifthey're available, then republish the finals. If not available, publish a final with an AIR documenting the effort to locate them.
Know this is a pain, appreciate the work.

Here is the email traffic on the case in question about the
Undetermined Death.

All the activity has been completed and now I'm wondering what I should
do? Change it back to Natural? Leave it as Undetermined? I figure
your the best expert on this one. This occurred right before "they"
decided we were going to do autopsies.

This case has one interesting fact it occurred on the day when all of
Abu (CID) was getting the new CIF stuff on Camp Victory. I remember
,sked me if I knew anything about this death as

this day because
we were going to get our CIF.

After looking at all the information 1 think the US military did this
guy a great disservice in not treating him properly...then again...I
don't know if the US had the means to treat this guy properly.
Everyone out here in Abu is short-changed in some capacity. But what

U V t;
can I do about that? I don't think any doctor is going to confess to negligence. Also, these detainees do not walk in with medical records 6/16/2004 http://akosmail.us.army.smil.mil/frame.html

OPS Review. (See RFI)
OPS Review:
1.
No crime scene exam was conducted due to operational safety, due to the number of detainees.

2.
At the time of this incident, detainees were not autopsied, therefore a copy of the report was not provided to the AFIP and an autopsy was not conducted.

3.
At the time of the incident, all CID agents were located on BIAP and did not return until after the body was on the way to BIAP.

4.
Copies could not be obtained of the medical journal at the time of the review, because neither this office nor the medical office had a copy machine. The medical journal could not be collected as evidence, due to the fact that it is a continuous journal with every detainee's medical visits documented. (Copies will be obtained now that we have a copy machine)

5.
The Final Supplemental ROI was a draft, therefore it concentrated on the main body of the case. When it is final it will be correct.

6.
The Camp NCOIC was the MP who reported the death. It will be made clearer in the AIR.

7.
This agent is aware of the medical care issue. However, no criminal act was committed. New procedures have been implemented by the medical staff.

Obtained copies of medical records. Scanned.
Obtained copies of detainee sick call log book and scanned. Also, extract from SGT 76' .10k2 DIDtained.
