Media Reacts Differently to Claims Freddie Gray Injured Self

New information has emerged that raises more questions about the death of Freddie Gray, the man who died while in police custody in Baltimore last week.

According to a police document obtained by The Washington Post, an unnamed prisoner riding in the same transport van as Gray, who was separated from him by a metal partition, told officials he heard Gray "banging against the walls" of the vehicle and believes he "was intentionally trying to injure himself."

Twenty-five-year-old Gray died April 19 in police custody after suffering a spinal injury, though it's unclear exactly when or how it happened. Baltimore police and the U.S. Department of Justice are currently investigating his death.

Given the potential gravity of this inmate's claim, the media reacted to The Washington Post report somewhat differently.

CNN's Don Lemon stuck to the facts of the case, while MSNBC's Rachel Maddow was a bit skeptical.

"Leaks like this always serve somebody's purpose," she said on Wednesday's broadcast. "We have no idea who gave this to The Washington Post or what their interests are having done so."

Fox News' Sean Hannity raised questions about whether the new claim proves President Obama "rushed to judgement" by sending White House officials to Baltimore.

"No," Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings said in response to those questions as a guest on the show.

The Post reports the Baltimore police investigator who wrote the document says it's unclear whether there's any other evidence supporting the prisoner's claims. The prisoner was reportedly not identified out of fear for his safety.

The new report comes at an interesting time. Rumors have circulated recently from a site called The Fourth Estate claiming Gray "received spinal and neck surgery a week before he was arrested" - suggesting that could've contributed to his death.

Though the Baltimore Sun claims those rumors are false and says court records point to a different case entirely that has nothing do with a spine injury.

The Gray family's attorney says they disagree with the prisoner's accusations, the same way they've questioned all police reports thus far.
