    The family of Chris Lighty has commissioned a second autopsy of the hip-hop mogul whose death in New York last week was ruled a suicide.

    Forensic pathologist Michael Baden said Wednesday that he performed the second autopsy at the request of the family. He said he's awaiting test results.
    Baden is paid to give independent opinions on deaths. He has testified in several high-profile cases including the O.J. Simpson trial.
    Lighty was found dead in his Bronx apartment with a gunshot wound to the head. The medical examiner ruled it a suicide. But his brother Dave Lighty has indicated in broadcast interviews that he is not sure his brother took his own life.
    Hip-hop stars including LL Cool J and Sean "Diddy" Combs attended Lighty's funeral in Manhattan on Wednesday.
