Foul play ruled out in death of Deltaville teen

The State Medical Examiner’s Office has determined that Allen Kyle Haywood’s manner of death was “an accident,” said Captain M. Sampson, spokesman for the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office.

Haywood, 18, of Deltaville, died in an area hospital on May 27, 2008.

On Sunday, May 25, about 9:30 a.m. Middlesex deputies along with the Deltaville and Urbanna rescue squads were dispatched to a residence on Barricks Mill Road in Wake responding to a 911 call for assistance. At that time it was reported that a guest in the home was unconscious and in need of emergency medical services. Haywood was transported from the scene to an area hospital where he died two days later.

No one has been charged in connection with Haywood’s death and no charges are expected to be filed, said Captain Sampson, who added that the autopsy report and investigation ruled out foul play as a cause of death.

“As far as the sheriff’s department and the State Police are concerned, it’s a closed case and an accidental death,” said Captain Sampson.

Captain Sampson said that as a result of the investigation into Haywood’s death, investigators received a lot of information about drug activity in Middlesex County.

Captain Sampson said Haywood’s death was investigated by Investigator C.B. Sibley of the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office, and special agents of the Virginia State Police.
