    Slowly but surely more and more investigation info is starting to come out. My biggest question is, what did the interview/s with his social worker reveal? That could go a long way as to showing what he mindset may have been.

    As far as the woman in the vehicle suing the LASD, that's going to be a whole different can of worms. The lawyers saying the tactics were wrong makes me laugh. He feared he was about to be kidnapped beaten and hung like his brother? No he feared going back to prison for a long long time because of his own actions. She either didn't know about the charges or knew and chose to ignore them because of their prior relationship.

    I see more business not wanting to be seen as cooperating with the police.

    If he did by the rope, maybe someone forced him to buy it.

    Can you blame them? Mob mentality rules and no one wants to wait for facts or the truth. The store that called the cops on George Floyd received threats. The Wendy's that called the cops on Rayshard Brooks was burned to ground by his girlfriend. It's a dad day for the nation when businesses are afraid to cooperate with law enforcement for fear of reprisal.

    PALMDALE, Calif. (KABC) -- An autopsy for Robert Fuller, who was found hanging from a tree near Palmdale City Hall, is complete and his family is awaiting the results as an investigation continues into the death that has sparked widespread controversy.

    Authorities initially said the 24-year-old's death appeared to be a suicide, although an official cause of death has not been made. Since his body was found June 10 in Poncitlan Square, multiple demonstrations have been held as protesters demand more answers.

    Fuller's funeral is set for Tuesday, June 30 at Living Stone Cathedral of Worship in Littlerock.

    “On behalf of the family, we are extremely appreciative of Los Angeles Clippers’ Paul George’s financial and emotional support of the Fuller family in this very difficult time,” said Fuller family attorney Jamon R. Hicks of Douglas/Hicks Law.

    Hicks also gave an update on the death investigation and addressed online rumors about the case.

    “I am happy to announce that the independent autopsy is complete, and we are waiting for testing results,” Hicks said. “I am also happy to share that Robert Fuller’s family has met with the lead detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and are looking forward to meeting with Sheriff Alex Villanueva. We have also maintained contact with the City of Palmdale. Everything is moving forward according to plan.”

    Hick’s continued: “I also want to put to rest several rumors circulating on social media claiming that Mr. Fuller was the suspect in an outstanding child molestation case and that a suicide note was found at the scene. These rumors have no basis in fact and are an attempt to further assassinate the character of Mr. Fuller. It is sad that there are people seeking to tarnish this young man’s reputation even after his death. His family has the right to grieve in peace over his loss and not be bothered with baseless rumors.”

    HOW would that happen? How could someone force him without it being obvious on the store video?

    First autopsy.
    Dr. Jonathan Lucas, the Medical Examiner-Coroner for LA County, said at a press conference that while initial reports “appeared to be consistent with a suicide” due “to the lack of evidence of any foul play at the time,” his office “felt it prudent to roll that back and continue to look deeper.” He said a complete autopsy was performed on June 12 and the results of the toxicology report are pending.

    I don't believe we have been told who preformed the independent autopsy and if they were able to get the city of Palmdale to pay for it. IMO that would be on them.

    Lawyers for the family of a 24-year-old Black man found hanging from a tree in Palmdale said Tuesday that they will seek an independent investigation and autopsy to determine his cause of death.

    Hicks said the family is asking for the independent autopsy to be paid for by the city of Palmdale.

    Maybe they can use some of the $235k they got from a ******** account to pay for it. Don't see why the City of Palmdale should or would have to pay for it.

    Why would the family expect the city to pay for an independent autopsy? You want it, you pay for it.

    Because some will never accept suicide.

    They already have the authorities on the defensive. May as well push the envelope.

    Imho if the autopsy is inconclusive & there is proof he purchased the rope, there will be a denial he purchased the rope to hang himself.

    Still unsure about this independent autopsy. I've followed enough cases to know you get the autopsy you paid for. If the family paid for the autopsy, I have a good guess what it will reveal.

    The pathologist may be checking to see if he was under any drugs that may have contributed to causing him to hang himself. I think it would fall under misadventure. Sounds like his lawyer and family believe suicide to be shameful. Look at his lawyer, he says the idea of a suicide to be "character assassination".

    One of the reasons the authorities think suicide was because of the reported lack of defensive wounds. I read speculation somewhere that Fuller may have been killed or incapacitated by drugs, and then placed in the noose set up by his murderer(s). This scenario could explain the absence of defensive wounds.
