Loved ones say they do not believe that account. They say Myrie was healthy when he entered the facility.
 
An autopsy performed upstate was inconclusive and results of a second independent autopsy requested by his family are still unknown.
 
Myrie is set to be laid to rest Thursday at the Cypress Hills Cemetery.
