He had been arrested on drug charges by LaFayette Police overnight.

Family members tell us that officials have not told them anything about the cause of death, even though the autopsy is complete.

“At this point, all I know is all of the authorities know how he died and they are not concerned with our feelings or well being because I need to know the reason he died.”

The GBI is investigating the case.
