The beloved human rights activist Danye Jones is the latest African-American leader to have been found dead following the untimely deaths of Sandra Bland, Marielle Franco & Darren Seals.
Danye’s body was found hung from a tree in his mother’s backyard with a bruised eye and clenched fists.
The police’s peculiar finding? Suicide.
Ohun Ashe, a fellow activist, explained…
Every few months an activist from Ferguson losses their life or loved one.ct 17, a well known activist, Melissa (Missy) Mckinnies found her son hanging from a tree in her backyard. They are trying to rule it a suicide but it’s not that. Its not.
His mother took to Facebook to share her grief…
They lynched my baby. I’m sick and losing my mind, but I had to let the world know what they did to my baby!
The cause of death won’t be determined until toxicology tests have been completed.
Three untimely deaths in St. Louis County over the past four years have inspired speculation that Ferguson protesters are being systematically murdered, although so far there is no evidence to suggest that the parallels are anything more than coincidental.
