Rep. Steve King said Thursday that he hopes the public gets a glimpse of the autopsy report for J. Christopher Stephens, the late U.S. Ambassador to Libya, during the select committee investigation into the attacks on diplomatic posts in Benghazi.

“The autopsy of Ambassador Stephens should also be released to the public,” Mr. King, Iowa Republican, said during a “Conversations with Conservatives” forum on Capitol Hill.

House Speaker John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican, tapped Rep. Trey Gowdy, South Carolina Republican, to lead the investigative committee, which will have have a 7-5 split between Republicans and Democrats.

Mr. Boehner said that the committee will look into what happened ahead of the 2012 terrorist attack in Libya and the Obama administration response to the attack, which led to the death of Mr. Stephens and three other Americans.
