ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. - The family of a woman found dead inside a St. Johns deputy's home is requesting the state perform an autopsy.

Michelle O' Connell was found dead inside her deputy boyfriend's home in St. Johns County back in 2010. Investigators say O' Connell used her boyfriend's service revolver to commit suicide.

However, her family believes her boyfriend killed her.

They created an online petition that calls on Gov. Rick Scott to open a coroner's inquest into her death.
