LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Dr. Joseph Burton says he was contacted by the Arkansas Special Prosecutors Office to get involved in the "Boys on the Tracks" case.
He performed the second autopsy April 5, 1988 on 17-year-old Kevin Ives and 16-year-old Don Henry. They were found on a set of railroad tracks near Alexander.
The first autopsy performed in 1987 by State Medical Examiner Dr. Fahmy Malak ruled the boys deaths as suicide. A year later, Georgia Medical Examiner Dr. Joseph Burton revealed the boys had been murdered.
Dr. Burton talked to our very own Liz Massey via Skype about his findings including a pattern injury on the face of Ives and a penetrating stab wound on the back of Henry.
He also has a special message for the victims' families. Plus, hear why he says, "Don't give up this investigation, it's not over yet."
