Lubbock's Medical Examiner could be headed into some controversy. 

The family of an Amarillo man and their attorney will hold a news conference Thursday. While 33-year-old Michael Lee Dick died in the custody of the Potter County Jail in Amarillo, the autopsy was done here in Lubbock.

The attorney for the family, Jeff Blackburn, tells NewsChannel 11 that Lubbock County Medical Examiner Thomas Beaver is covering up evidence to protect Potter County officers from being sued.

NewsChannel 11 will look for an update and both sides of the story after Thursday's news conference.
