The transcripts of the Grand Jury testimonies about the shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

Yeah, the person who reached out was the attorney and he said the Brown family, I specifically remember this because it is not surprising in some way. That the mother and the father, it's now been a week, they don't know why their son died and they had other questions. And they're concerned that they might not, they have been told it might be weeks or months before they are given any information while it is being completed.

So they wanted an autopsy largely to find out what, why the son died except besides reading speculations in newspapers. And also I find out when I sat down with the family, I came, I sat down with them first, what all families do they want to know, did my son suffer, you know. Did he die right away, and that was the issue.

The issue wasn't did he get shot by the police because that was pretty obvious, but the issue was what happened, how many times was he shot, did he have pain and suffering because that was the issue. And principally because they thought they weren't going to be able to get this any other way, to this day they haven't gotten it any other way.
