Posted January 31, 2012
Raleigh, N.C. — 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.
