"The results of the autopsy are that the manner of death is suicide, and the cause of death is hanging," a news release from the GBI said.
" After a thorough autopsy examination, there was no evidence of any inflicted trauma to Champion's body."
During the initial examination of Champion’s body, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said there weren’t any wounds or cuts that would suggest a struggle before he died. His arms and legs were not bound.

In the past two weeks, Champion had been questioned by police in regard to the murder of a White woman, Carol Lewis, 55.
GBI officials said that Champion was not going to be charged in Lewis’ murder.
Champion had several run-ins with the law prior to his death, but his friends and family members don’t believe there was any reason for him to commit suicide.
An autopsy will be conducted today to determine Champion’s exact cause of death.
