Vibe / November 24, 2009

Georgia officials have granted a request by the family of Real Housewives of Atlanta-featured A.J. Jewell to have his body exhumed for a second autopsy.

As reported earlier this month, sources say Jewell’s family refused to believe the father and ex-fiance of Housewives star Kandi Burruss died due to complications from sickle cell anemia.

According to TMZ, officials will exhume Jewell’s body in an attempt to reevaluate the cause of death.

“I hope this next autopsy will prove that my son was murdered,” Jewell’s father A.B. Jewell Sr. told CNN. “I want the public to know my son did not have sickle cell disease, and I hope this next autopsy will prove that my son was murdered.”

Jewell died shortly after a fight at an Atlanta area strip club in October.
