A private pathologist who conducted the latest autopsy of Michelle O'Connell's body ruled her death a homicide.
O'Connell was found dead on the floor of her boyfriend's home in 2010 from a gunshot wound.
Her boyfriend was St. Johns County Sheriff's Office deputy Jeremy Banks.
Several local and state investigators ruled she killed herself with his service weapon but family does not believe her death was a suicide.
Banks was cleared of any wrongdoing.
O'Connell's body was exhumed from her burial site on Jan. 11 and Dr. Bill Anderson performed the autopsy pro bono.
Findings of the autopsy were released on Sunday. The family filed the findings with the Medical Examiners Commission on Monday.
In 2014, Gov. Rick Scott assigned a special prosecutor to the case. In 2015, State Attorney Jeffrey L. Ashton said the evidence in O'Connell's case did not support homicide.
The investigation into O'Connell's death was the subject of national media coverage by outlets such as The New York Times, CNN, Dateline, PBS Frontline and ABC's Good Morning America.
St. Johns County Sheriff David Shoar released a statement about the findings on Sunday and said no new information was presented and all was reviewed during the initial autopsy.
