FBI Looking Into Levert's Death

Sean Levert’s family is bringing in the FBI to
investigate the cause of his death.

Levert, 39, died of undetermined causes Sunday after
being taken from prison to a Cleveland hospital. He
had been serving a 22 month sentence for not paying
$89,025 in back child support. Authorities said Levert
was placed in a restraint chair after banging on his
cell door. Shortly thereafter, he experienced shallow
breathing and was taken to Lutheran Hospital where he
died an hour later. FBI spokesman Scott Wilson says
agents would meet with Levert's family.

Sean Levert and his brother Gerald formed the group
Levert and produced such hits as “Casanova” and “Baby
I’m Ready”. Gerald died of an accidental drug overdose
in 2006.
