Two months after a plainclothes Minnesota sheriff's deputy fatally shot an unarmed man wearing only swim trunks, family members of the dead man say they're still waiting for an explanation.

About 50 people picketed outside the Le Sueur County Sheriff's Department to pressure investigators to provide answers about Tyler Heilman's death.

Authorities have said Heilman was shot four times by a deputy after the 24-year-old returned from a day of swimming with friends.

Here's how I'd start the eulogy: "The world has lost a kind, generous man who looked like he was packing a pistol in his speedos."
