Atlanta’s Piedmont Park is closed this morning as an investigation in underway after the body of a Black male was found HANGING from a tree near the park’s entrance.
Atlanta Police have issued a statement saying that the scene is “consistent with a suicide,” however social media is not letting this story slide that easy.
Social media has been trending with questions about the bizarre incident, which many news outlets are refusing to report because the APD has issued a report claiming that it was a suicide.
In light of all of the recent police shootings and the resurgence of the KKK in Stone Mountain, many on social media feel that authorities may be covering up a lynching.
*sigh* I don’t know what to believe anymore. It’s all just terribly disturbing at this point.
What are your thoughts about this bizarre ‘hanging’ incident?
