Chavis Carter's family isn’t accepting the autopsy report released by the Jonesboro medical examiners office.
The autopsy report stated that Chavis was on meth when he fatally shot himself while his hands were cuffed behind him in the backseat of a patrol car in Arkansas.
As reported by the Associated Press:
The family portrays the 21-year-old as a bright, young man who aspired to be a veterinarian, who liked shopping for sneakers and playing basketball.
"If he did it, I want to know how it happened," his grandmother, Anne Winters Carter, said in an interview. "And if he didn't do it, then we want justice."
As questions swirl about how and why Carter died, his family also has been demanding more answers from authorities.
Jonesboro police have faced criticism because they say officers searched Carter twice, but didn't find a gun before they noticed him slumped over and bleeding in the back of a patrol car on July 28th.
Both officers are on paid administrative leave as the investigation into Chavis’ shooting death is ongoing.
