It's now been a year since 22-year-old Shali Tilson was found dead inside the Rockdale County Jail.

And on this somber anniversary, community organizations Tuesday joined Tilson's loved ones in a call for action.

They held a rally at Pine Log Park in Conyers to demand answers and action from law enforcement.

Tilson was found dead nine days after his arrest.

Georgia Bureau of Investigation Medical Examiners determined he died from complications related to dehydration.

Last month, loved ones and civil rights groups sent a request to the DOJ, requesting it to investigate Tilson's death.

Family attorneys said the FBI has since begun reviewing the case.
