Gov. Bush Pushes For Resolution in Anderson Case

Martin Lee Anderson
TAMPA -

Gov. Jeb Bush denied any conspiracy in the Martin Lee Anderson case is untrue. But he then vented his own feelings on how long it's taking to investigate the January death.

BUSH: I share their unbelievable frustration. It's legitimate that this has taken way too long. And Mr. Ober - if you're watching - please let's get this resolved.

The governor appointed Hillsborough State Attorney Mark Ober to investigate the case and is being on the progress weekly.

BUSH: What we heard is there's still work to do. They're doing some additional work. But it's nearing completion. That's all he said. He didn't give, his office never gives a timetable

A second autopsy by the medical examiner for Hillsborough County found Martin Anderson's death was caused by suffocation due to the actions of the guards at the sheriff's boot camp for juvenile offenders.

Anderson's parents are suing for $40 million dollars.
