3. Last I heard the coroner had released the body to the family

And they are getting their own autopsy, but the DOJ will perform a third autopsy:

Justice Department to Perform Autopsy on Michael Brown
Aug 17, 2014, 11:39 AM ET
The Justice Department will perform its own autopsy on the body of Michael Brown as part of its independent investigation into the Missouri teenager's shooting death, officials announced today.

"Due to the extraordinary circumstances involved in this case and at the request of the Brown family, Attorney General Holder has instructed Justice Department officials to arrange for an additional autopsy to be performed by a federal medical examiner," the Justice Department said in a statement today.

In addition to the Justice Department's autopsy, the St. Louis County Medical Examiner and forensic pathologist Michael Baden, who was hired by the Brown family, are conducting their own autopsies.

According to preliminary results from the county's autopsy, Brown died from gunshot wounds. Justice Department officials will also consider that autopsy in their investigation.
