"Do I believe that Chris killed himself? The answer is no" Says Lead Investigator In Chris Lighty's Death (Video)

Fox 5 News keeps on investigating on Chris Lighty's death and has now learned that the investigation into how Chris Lighty died is now ramping up because his heartbroken mother is looking to file a wrongful death lawsuit against whoever may have been responsible

The lead investigator, Les Levine, told Fox 5 exclusively what the ultimate goal is.

"I guess it comes down to the bottom question: Do I believe Chris would kill himself?' The answer is no," Levine said.

Levine was hired by Lighty's mother, who was given money for the effort by her son's long time business associate, 50 Cent. In an exclusive interview, 50 Cent told me he was moved by her grief.

The New York City Medical Examiner ruled that the 44- year-old hip hop power broker died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in his Riverdale home in August.

But many who knew him, including the stars at his funeral, had doubts.

One suicide theory was that Chris had overwhelming financial problems. 50 Cent discounted that and told me they had just agreed to a tour deal that would have netted him about $4 million.

Levine said there is no possibility Lighty killed himself over money.

Another suicide theory that Levine is discounting is that Lighty was in despair over marital problems. Sources said Lighty had a stormy but close relationship with his wife, Veronica. (pic below)

Police sources said she was in the home when he shot himself. Other sources said she had filed and then withdrawn a divorce request in 2011.

We tried to reach Veronica Lighty at her home and by email but were not successful.

Levine said he has not been able to reach her, either.

I did receive two calls from people close to Veronica Lighty, but they would not go on camera or give us a statement.

The overall investigation is being guided by attorney Scott Leemon, who is volunteering his services. He has set up an email for anyone with information: tips@leemonlaw.com.

I don't know but why would someone so successful kill himself and then talks about a concert deal that would have puledl in $4million! I don't think so. That's a lot of good to look forward to. I hope they get to the bottom of this because something's not right and a mother knows her child and his ways. RIP Chris

She set him up obviously....No way in hell or heaven would a person very successful in the music business like Chris is would veer commit suicide....She set him up real bad....Look at the stars he does business with....Everyone knows him very well....She has access to some serious money I am sure and she wanted it all...Even in an interview 50 cent stated that no way this is a suicide...she acting all stupid and was inside the house at the time of suicide....reminds me of learning when Kurt Cobain "committed suicide" of course fingers still point at his wife...Who is near bankrupt right now smh!!
