Governor Expresses Doubt Over Autopsy Results

Bush has seen the videotape which shows the boy being beaten by guards and he said it’s hard to imagine the first medical examiner concluded that Anderson was killed by a blood disorder.

Gov. Jeb Bush stated, “What I saw was, the autopsy, it would be very hard for me to suggest that that would be sickle cell trait, and whether it’s a crime or not will be determined not by conjecture or not by amateurs like me. I would be an amateur in this field, but it would be by the state attorney after a thorough investigation, and that’s what’s happening.”

Bush has appointed Hillsborough County state attorney Mark Ober to investigate the case. Last week, while the students occupied his office, Bush sent a letter to Ober asking him to speed up the investigation.
