Questions remain for the family and friends of a man who died in police custody. Sunday night, loved ones held a candlelight vigil for Robin Howard as they hoped a new investigation will provide the closure they need.

While some answers have surfaced since an internal investigation by Oklahoma City Police, the family and their attorney still want information.

Just feet from where Oklahoma City Police caught Howard, family and friends hold candles, signs and balloons, remembering his life, but looking for information.

Howard died in the hospital following a brief police pursuit. His family says they weren't notified about his arrest until it was too late to say goodbye and they have questions about what exactly happened to their loved one.

That information could be come soon now that FBI agents announced an investigation; something Howard's family hoped for.

The crowd also heard a letter sent from the Rev. Jesse Jackson supporting Howard's family. The family's attorney, David Slane, tells News 9 Jackson could be in Oklahoma City sometime this week to meet with the family.

The family expects part of the Medical Examiner's report that was previously withheld to be released sometime later this week as well.
