COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -The GBI has been asked to investigate two cases involving the Muscogee County School District. 

The agency says it received a letter from District Attorney Julia Slater to look into the Montravious Thomas incident and a deadly school bus crash. 

Thomas, 13, had one of his legs amputated after he was reportedly slammed by a behavioral specialist at the Edgewood Student Center. 

MCSD issued several statements on the Thomas incident, saying that the student was walking and not in distress after having to be physically restrained by a Bryant Mosely, a contracted behavioral specialist. Mosely was not an employee with MCSD. 

The August bus crash killed the driver, 67-year-old Roy Newman, and injured several students. 

MCSD said at the time of the accident, Newman was employed with the school district in 2013 as a bus driver trainee, and he started as a full-time bus driver since March 2014. He was a driver for Shaw High School, Midland Middle School as well Mathews Elementary School. 

The GBI says because of the active investigations by the Columbus Police Department they will not look into either case.
