A MAN who was shot more than 60 times by cops was handcuffed before being brought to a coroner, autopsy findings reveal.
Jayland Walker, who was unarmed, was killed following a car chase in Akron, Ohio on June 27.
Cops claimed that the 25-year-old had refused to stop his vehicle and discharged a weapon before he was gunned down.
Pictures showed Walker dead and handcuffed at the scene, according to the Summit County Medical Examiner’s report which was obtained by CNN.
There was blood on his driver's license and on the handcuffs.
Walker was covered in dozens of gunshot wounds from his ankle to cheek on both sides of his body.

Officers claimed they attempted to use their tasers to apprehend Walker, but failed.
Walker then fled to a nearby parking lot before turning toward officers, who opened fire.
The footage captured Walker falling to the ground when bullets were fired.
Cops tried to help after shooting Walker but he died at the scene.
Mylett revealed that Walker had a pulse when cops tried to put him in the car, according to the Daily Beast.
Police found a handgun, loaded magazine, and a gold wedding ring inside his car.
But, no gun was found on his body when he died.
Eight officers – seven men and one woman – were involved in the shooting and have been placed on administrative leave.
None of the eight officers have substantiated complaints or fatal shootings on their records, per the Akron Police Department.
Bobby diCello, who is representing the Walker family, said he was sickened after watching the bodycam footage.
He told CNN: “It’s devastating to see a young life taken in this rabid, crazy way.”
DiCello’s colleague Ken Abbarno told the Daily Beast: “The officers will need to account for every single action that they did.
“We live in a society where we can never see this happen again.”
