A day after meeting with Attorney General Eric Holder, CNN’s Anderson Cooper sat down with Mike Brown’s parents to discuss the impact of Holder’s visit to Ferguson, Mo.,

Fighting back tears, Lesley McSpadden and Michael Brown Senior accompanied by their lawyer, told Cooper that speaking with the attorney general has helped instill some trust in the investigation.

“Up until yesterday, I didn’t (have any trust). But just hearing the words come directly from his mouth, face-to-face, he made me feel like one day I will. And I’m not saying today or yesterday one day they will regain my trust.”

Twelve days after the violent shooting of 18-year-old Mike Brown, reports indicate McSpadden and Mike Brown Senior went to the local morgue to visit their son’s body for the first time. A funeral will be set for Monday morning, Aug. 25.
