Results of Columbus man's shooting death forwarded to FBI

COLUMBUS, IN (AP) -

A central Indiana sheriff's department has forwarded results of an investigation into a man dying from a gunshot wound to the FBI.

The death of Cary Owsley in April 2013 initially was ruled a suicide by the Bartholomew County coroner without an autopsy. Sheriff Matt Myers suspended three deputies three months later for "errors in judgment" during the investigation. Owsley was married to the one of those deputies' ex-wife.

Owsley's sister, Cheryl Jackson, led a campaign to have his remains exhumed and tested by two medical examiners, who ruled his cause of death to be undetermined.
