Byron Jones, 26, died last Friday after he got caught in the shredder at Genan, Inc., in northeast Harris County and couldn’t get free.

OSHA investigators were at the plant over the weekend.

Experts, investigators and an attorney who’s representing Jones’ family went to the plant on Tuesday.

"We are currently investigating the incident and expect to file a lawsuit in order to hold all negligent and grossly negligent parties fully accountable for this tragedy," attorney Andrew Seerden told a Houston TV station.

The company had no comment.
