Sylvester- GBI Agents say Sylvester Police Chief Tommy Bozeman requested an investigation by an outside agency.

37 year old Herman Jackson died just hours after being taken into custody by Assistant Chief Charles Thurmond and two other patrolmen.

Sylvester City attorney Tommy Coleman says the GBI has turned the report over to District Attorney Paul Bowden.

Autopsy results and contents of the report will not be released until Bowden has had a chance to review it first.
