The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is continuing its investigation into the March 25 death of Leroy S. Teague, 11, of Pembroke, according to Cathy Sapp, special agent in charge at the GBI’s Statesboro office.

Bryan County Coroner Bill Cox said an autopsy was ordered.

“At this point, we are not releasing the cause of death and are awaiting the results of the autopsy,” Sapp said. “No arrest warrants have been issued, and we are continuing to investigate.”

Sapp said anyone with information about the case should call the GBI at 912-871-1121.

According to the GBI’s website, autopsies are performed when a death falls into one of eight categories. They are:

·         • Apparently homicidal, suicidal or occurring under suspicious or unknown circumstances.

·        • Resulting from the unlawful use of controlled substances or the use or abuse of chemicals or toxic agents.

·        • Occurring while incarcerated or while in the custody of a law-enforcement officer.

·         • Apparently accidental or following an injury.

·         • By disease, injury or toxic agent during or arising from employment.

·         • While not under the care of a physician during the period immediately preceding the death.

·         • Related to disease that might constitute a threat to the health of the general public.

·        • In which human remains have been disposed of in an offensive manner.
