(COLUMBUS) - The son of a Columbus man whose death was originally ruled a suicide is suing a former sheriff, a county coroner and four deputies who investigated his death.

Logan Owsley's federal suit filed Tuesday in Indianapolis alleges obstruction of justice, conspiracy and neglect.

Cary Owsley was found dead with a gunshot wound in April 2013. His death was originally ruled a suicide, but two forensic pathologists who examined the 49-year-old man's body after it was exhumed ruled his manner of death undetermined.

The Republic reports the suit names former Bartholomew County Sheriff Mark Gorbett, Coroner Larry Fisher, four current deputies and two former deputies.

Owsley was married to the ex-wife of one of those deputies.
