Who has custody of Michael Brown's body?

Ferguson PD and/or the County Coroner can not be trusted. I haven't heard anything about this issue. I would hope Federal security is involved....

to the family.

I just have no trust in locals there...

2. I think the body has been released to the family, but may have been given to feds

for another autopsy. The whole thing just makes me ill -- that poor kid being passed around like a lab specimen. Although, not sure there is a better way to ensure justice at this point.

3. Last I heard the coroner had released the body to the family

And they are getting their own autopsy, but the DOJ will perform a third autopsy:

Justice Department to Perform Autopsy on Michael Brown
Aug 17, 2014, 11:39 AM ET
The Justice Department will perform its own autopsy on the body of Michael Brown as part of its independent investigation into the Missouri teenager's shooting death, officials announced today.

"Due to the extraordinary circumstances involved in this case and at the request of the Brown family, Attorney General Holder has instructed Justice Department officials to arrange for an additional autopsy to be performed by a federal medical examiner," the Justice Department said in a statement today.

In addition to the Justice Department's autopsy, the St. Louis County Medical Examiner and forensic pathologist Michael Baden, who was hired by the Brown family, are conducting their own autopsies.

According to preliminary results from the county's autopsy, Brown died from gunshot wounds. Justice Department officials will also consider that autopsy in their investigation.

6. After the county coroner destroyed any conclusive evidence, nothing else will matter.

 

You know they did in the "first autopsy".

8. I bet the other forensic people will be able to tell

If the county coroner did an incompetent job. I can't imagine what condition the body will be in after three separate autopsies, though.

7. That feels reassuring....

Too much information can be a negative too....there is a chance that conflicts leaves a jury confused...but that's just me in a worry mode. Michael Baden...a master of forensic medicine.

5. AG Holder has ordered a Federal autopsy, so I would assume the Feds have it.
