The family of late filmmaker John Singleton has launched a private investigation of his death.

The “Boyz N the Hood” director died after suffering a stroke, but his family said it still has unanswered questions, including what happened in the hours before he checked himself into the hospital.

The family said it doesn’t know how Singleton got to the hospital or who he was with when he arrived. TMZ reported that there are no records of him taking a ride-hailing service to the hospital and none of his friends took him there. The staff at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles reportedly told his family that he came in alone.

Singleton, 51, was hospitalized on April 17 after returning from a trip to Costa Rica and experiencing weakness in his leg. He then fell into a coma and died on April 29.
