The family of a Missouri teen who was shot by a police officer wanted an independent autopsy because they "could not trust" the official reports into their son's death.
Attorney Ben Crump said: "They did want to be left having to rely on the autopsy done by the St Louis law enforcement agencies, the same individuals they feel are responsible for executing their son in broad daylight."
He added: "They could not trust what was going to be put in the reports about the tragic execution of their child."
