— A man who died in November after a fight outside a Raleigh bar suffered several skull fractures, according to an autopsy report released Tuesday.

Marvin Alberto Quinonez, 29, got into an argument inside Churchill's Bar, at 1622 Glenwood Ave., after he got off work as a bartender at a nearby restaurant, police said. The altercation continued outside, where it allegedly turned physical.

A passerby found Quinonez injured behind the bar in the early morning hours of Nov. 13. He had suffered severe head trauma and died in the hospital more than a week later.

The autopsy report states that Quinonez had three fractures to his skull, as well as other injuries, and it listed his cause of death as blunt-force trauma to the head.

Police have spoken to a man who had an altercation with Quinonez, but they say the case is still under investigation.

    A lot of people have a lot more information than is being reported here. And, Marvin had a lot more "connections" than one might think. There are many, many people who have taken an interest in this case. No one understands why there has not yet been an arrest.

    What a horrible way to die, or lose a loved one. I hope that the person who caused his injuries is charged with murder, and given a lonnnnng prison sentance.

    The guy who died used to work in the bar in the Glenwood Grill, which is about a mile away from Churchill’s. He seemed like a nice friendly guy.
    I live nearby and have been hearing some stories on it. Supposedly the police know who he was arguing with. But the guy has not been arrested. That is all I know.

    Does anybody have more information concerning this case than what is being reported here?

    I live near the Five Points area. Anyone who thinks its safe there needs to open their eyes. People drive like murderous maniacs down crowded streets, there have been two MURDERS in the area in the last year or so, as has already been talked about. Looks like nothing is going to be done about either case,
    probably because someone has connections somewhere. Forget LEO, there is one truck I saw with a bumper sticker that says "I Don't Call 911". Well, that goes for me also. LEO shows up after the fact, and then does nothing. Maybe their hands are tied in some cases.
