PANOLA COUNTY, Miss. -- The gas station worker who spoke to Jessica Chambers the night she died told WREG he is receiving death threats.

The employee, Ali Alsanai, went to the Panola County Sheriff's office Monday to try to get an order of protection.

Online, people have accused Alsanai of editing the store surveillance video. Alsanai told WREG the time stamp on the video is off due to Daylight Saving Time.

Alsanai has also been accused of gang ties due to posts he has made on social media showing large sums of cash.

"They came to the store, they asked for the surveillance video. I showed them the surveillance video. The next day, they came and asked for the camera, so I gave them the camera system. What else can I do?" he said.

There is no indication as of now that Alsanai is involved in the death of Jessica Chambers.

Monday, the Panola County Sheriff's Office confirmed the FBI is now involved in the investigation of the death of Jessica Chambers.

Chambers was found burning and died in Panola County December 6th.

Investigators say Chambers was burned over 98% of her body.

Autopsy results have been finalized but not released to the public.

Multiple agencies, including the ATF, Mississippi Bureau of Investigation, Mississippi Crime Lab and U.S. Attorney, are involved in the investigation and several people have been questioned.

A funeral was held last Saturday in Batesville, Mississippi.

The Chambers family is asking that any memorials be sent to Renasant Bank in Batesville.
