Florida Medical Examiner Investigated

Florida's attorney general wants an investigation of the medical examiner who ruled that a 14-year-old boy died of natural causes after he was beaten by guards at a Panama City juvenile boot camp.

Doctor Charles Siebert's decision that Martin Anderson died of sickle cell complications has been widely criticized.

However attorney General Charles Crist says a review by the Florida Medical Examiner Board would not include those findings because he doesn't want to interfere with that investigation.

Instead, Crist wants to checkout allegations that Siebert described a woman as having male organs, a man with significant scars as having no scars and an accident victim as a suicide victim in other autopsies.

Siebert has issued a statement saying he stands by his findings.

The medical examiner board could remove Siebert from office if they find enough evidence of wrong-doing.
