There are many questions surrounding the death of 15 year old Quawan Charles. According to the results of an independent American Forensics autopsy by TMZ, there appears to be enough evidence to conclude that he died from "possible drowning."
The autopsy also said there were "no signs of trauma or natural disease and that the body went through decomposition changes upon arrival".
However, its official cause of death is still unknown. USA Today reports that death is being investigated as murder.
The 15-year-old from Baldwin, Louisiana, disappeared from his home on October 30th. Days later, the family said his body was found in a sugar cane field about 20 miles away in the municipality of Iberia. The Iberia community's coroner office said a preliminary autopsy suspected he likely drowned to death, KLFY-TV reported.

Since then, local authorities have opened an investigation to find out what happened between Charles' disappearance and the discovery of his body.
The doctor's office said a full report could take up to 12 weeks. However, the local sheriff's department has already classified the circumstances of his death as "suspicious".
The Charles family launched a GoFundMe to help cover the cost of investigating his death. A $ 5,000 reward is also offered to anyone who can offer credible additional information.
The Police Department of the Municipality of Iberia called for more transparency. Sheriff Tommy Romero said in a November 14 press release: "I want to assure the public that I and my team are doing everything possible to gather evidence of what happened in the untimely death of Quawan & # 39; Bobby & # 39; Charles. Any loss of life is a tragedy, and this is especially true for young people. "
