State senator: Leakers trying to 'incite' Ferguson community

(CNN) – Supporters of Michael Brown, the unarmed teenager shot dead by a police officer in August, say leaks of the autopsy and details of investigation are doing more harm than good.

"My constituents feel as though this information that has been leaked is merely out in public to incite the community," State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal said in an interview with CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper."

"People are wondering, why now?" Chappelle-Nadal said, saying her constituents believe authorities are trying to rile up the community "instead of bringing peace."
