Corey Jones' family to speak in Tallahassee

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - At the Capitol Wednesday morning, Corey Jones' family members and their attorneys are expected to discuss where they are in their efforts to push body camera legislation.

After Corey Jones was killed by former Palm Beach Gardens police officer Nouman Raja in October, his family has been advocating for law enforcement agencies to use body cameras.

They have been meeting with several state legislators and on Corey's 32nd birthday Wednesday they will seek to meet with Governor Scott in hopes of gaining his support for the legislation.

Recently, community leaders and Jones' family members worked with the city of Palm Beach Gardens to pass an ordinance that will fund police body cameras.

The attorneys including Benjamin Crump also expect to give an update they say they have from the state attorney's office on the investigation.
