Harmful fumes caused the death of a Chicago police officer in April after he was exposed weeks earlier to a cleaning substance at a far Southwest Side station where he worked, according to autopsy results released recently by the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
Kevin Robinson, 42, a tactical officer with 15 years with the department, died of a lung illness from inhaling the noxious fumes, the autopsy report said. His death was ruled an accident.
Robinson, assigned to the Morgan Park police district, was taken to Advocate Trinity Hospital in early March. He told another officer he was coughing and having trouble breathing after inhaling a cleaning substance that a maintenance worker sprayed from an aerosol can on a desk at the district station, according to a police report.
He was released from the hospital after a few days but returned a short time later when his illness persisted. Robinson’s lungs all but shut down, forcing doctors to place the father of two teenagers in a medically induced coma. He died April 4, his family said.
A Chicago police spokeswoman said the department is reviewing Robinson’s autopsy report but declined further comment.
Robinson’s former wife, Camille Robinson, said her ex-husband never smoked or suffered a debilitating sickness in the past.
“People have colds,” she said. “It was never anything that would break him down where he couldn’t breathe or have to go to the hospital.”
She said she has been disappointed by the department’s handling of the matter. She said she wishes the department would offer help to her or their children — daughter Cidney, 16, and son Kyle, 14. She also said some of her former husband’s colleagues in the department didn’t learn about his death until weeks later.
“I’m not asking for them to do much,” she said. “I know they support family members being left behind.”
