Chief Assistant District Attorney Lewis Lamb says the autopsy results are in for the death of Lee County's Kent Adam.

The injuries suffered by Kent Adam in a huge brawl in May did not contribute to his death. He died from other conditions.

Lamb said he would give more details later today after the grand jury meets. That case is not going to come up today in their session.

50-year-old Kent Adam died, and his son, 22-year-old James Calvin Adam, was injured, after the massive fight broke out early Sunday morning May 11 at 781 Flowing Well Road, in Lee County.

Investigators said as many as nine people were involved in the fight at Kent Adam's home at 781 Flowing Well Road.

Both victims went to the hospital, but refused medical treatment. Kent Adam died later at his home

All of the people involved were said to be friends. It was unclear what led to the fight.

Five adults and two juveniles were arrested for the assaults.

These individuals were arrested and each charged with one count of Aggravated Assault and one count of Aggravated Battery:

Aric William Lee Cates, 19

Terry James Gravett Jr., 21

Alexandrea Marie Cates, 20

Taylor Elaine Lewis, 17

Klaudia Jade Truluck, 17

No murder charges will be filed.

"The official autopsy report has not been released, but I'm aware of the results and so I know that I can't prove it is a murder and so I'm not going to present it as a murder case," said Lamb.

Lamb hopes to have the case indicted in the next session in October.
