VIDEO: Ark. Agency's Suicide Reenactment In Squad

Police in Jonesboro, Ark., say the girlfriend of a man shot to death in the back of a squad car told an investigator he had called her from the car and said he had a gun.

In a four-page statement police offered several new details about the investigation into the July 28 death of Chavis Carter, 21. Earlier this week, an autopsy report ruled that Carter's death was a suicide.

Carter's girlfriend, who was not identified in the report, also told the investigator that Carter said he loved her and that he was scared, according to the police statement. Phone records showed Carter made two calls, at least one of which was from the back of the patrol car, police said.

No matter what witnesses say the family will not accept the truth. Especially, now that the wonderful Rev. Jackson is involved, he will get everyone pissed off at the PD and shift blame to the officers etc......we'll
have protest marches then he will leave.

Why was he in the back of their car with a gun and cell phone? Did they not bother searching before detaining? Sloppy
