''The NYPD Did Not Do A Thorough Investigation''
The family of late music manager Chris Lighty is seeking further investigation into the circumstances surrounding Lighty's apparent suicide. The family has launched a petition urging that certain forensic tests be conducted that were not taken care of at the time of the famed industry mainstay's August 2012 death.
â€œThe main problem that we encountered was that the NYPD did not do a thorough investigation into Chrisâ€™ death,â€� Attorney Scott Leemon said in a statement. â€œIn fact, what they did do was cursory, at best.â€�
Leemon states that a gunpowder residue test was not conducted at the death scene, nor was a DNA test conducted on the weapon used in the death.
â€œWe have uncovered real information that needs to be followed up on by those in authority," said Lighty's mother.The family's petition is available to sign at iPetition.
