The family of a black man found hanging in Mississippi wants a review of the autopsy of his death saying the credibility of the medical examiner is in question. Last December, 26 year old Frederick Jermaine Carter was found hanging in a tree near Greenwood. Authorities say Carter had a history of mental illness and suicide attempts and killed himself. The FBI assisted in the death investigation where the family says Mississippi's medical examiner should release his files so a third party can review them. They claim Dr. Adel Shaker lied about a cause of death in a murder case when he worked in Kenya.
