DA to conduct independent review into death of David Silva

"Kern County District Attorney Lisa Green said Friday that her office will conduct an independent review into the death of David Sal Silva once the sheriff's department and FBI have finished their investigations."

" The decision to conduct the review was made prior to Sheriff Donny Youngblood's offer to her to conduct an investigation, Green said. She said the public doesn't have a lot of information regarding what happened, and she said she thinks citizens "look to the DA's office in order to get the information and reach a just result."

Green made her decision public a day after a news conference in which Youngblood defended his deputies' actions in restraining Silva, and released details from the pathologist's report that Silva was drunk and on three different drugs when he died."

"The cause of death was hypertensive heart disease and the pathologist ruled the death was accidental, Youngblood said."
