Boot Camp Death

A Florida medical examiner has completed a second autopsy on the teenager who died after he was punched and kicked by guards at a juvenile boot camp.

Officials would not discuss the results of the autopsy.

But the lawyer for the teen's family says he will hold a news conference in the morning to discuss the autopsy.

The body of 14-year-old Martin Anderson was exhumed Friday and brought to Tampa.

The second autopsy was ordered after Anderson's parents questioned the findings of Bay County's medical examiner.

That doctor concluded that Anderson died from complications of sickle cell trait.

Anderson died early January sixth at a Pensacola hospital, hours after he collapsed after doing exercises on his first day at the camp.

He was then struck, kicked and dragged to the ground by several guards during a half-hour ordeal that was recorded on videotape.
