Sister Files Lawsuit to Have Brother's Body Exhumed

The sister of 49-year-old Cary Owsley, who doubts that her brother killed himself four months ago, has filed a lawsuit seeking a court order to have her brother's body exhumed and sent to Baltimore for a privately financed autopsy.

Our news gathering partners at "The Republic" report Cheryl Jackson contends that a Bartholomew County Sheriff's Department probe was tainted by critical missteps.

Jackson's goal, according to the lawsuit, is to learn whether her brother committed suicide April 7, as Coroner Larry Fisher ruled, and let an outside expert - Dr. Cyril Wecht, who has a forensics institute in his name at Duquesne University - conduct forensic tests.

Jackson has waged a campaign to call attention to her brother's case and what she considers a bungled sheriff's department investigation.
