Valdosta -- Relatives of a man who died in a South Georgia jail question the results of a state autopsy. 

Today, the family of 21-year-old George Hill, Junior gathered outside the Lowndes County jail where Hill died June 23rd. They don't believe the conclusion of GBI crime lab medical examiners that Hill died from heart disease.

They say he had no previously known heart condition, and they say a second autopsy for which they paid raised questions about the original autopsy procedure.  

"This particular autopsy was performed irregularly," said the Victim's Aunt, Linda Harris. "We want to know why. There were also some body parts that were not with the body, and we want to know why. So given that, the question is, is there something they don't want to disclose?"

The Hill family said the pathologist they hired is still investigating the cause of Hill's death.

The Lowndes County Sheriff's Office has repeatedly refused to comment about this case.
