RALEIGH, N.C. — The family of a mentally ill man killed by law officers in a hail of bullets on Interstate 40 on Tuesday said they are so concerned about inconsistencies in accounts of the shooting that they have postponed cremating his body for fear of destroying evidence of precisely how he died.

A pair of SBI agents met with relatives of Stephen Ryan Gibson for about two hours Thursday at the family home. According to the deceased man's father and uncle, the agents gave the family an account of Gibson's death that differs from the version released by the state Highway Patrol earlier in the week.
