Boot Camp Death

Bay County officials have released autopsy results for a 14-year-old boy who died at a Panama City boot camp for juvenile offenders.

At a press conference at three this afternoon, a medical examiner announced that Martin Lee Anderson suffered complications caused by a blood disorder known as sickle cell trait.

The sheriff's office says Anderson died Jan. 6 at the boot camp after he became uncooperative and was restrained.

The boy's mother, Gina Jones, contends her son was murdered by guards who beat him to death.

Meanwhile, the U.S. justice department says it has opened an investigation into the death.
