Breaking: Police release conclusive evidence in hanging of black man in California that BLM protesters called a lynching
After angry protests claimed a black man was lynched in Palmdale, California, police released conclusive evidence to support the claim that he committed suicide.
Robert Fuller’s body was found on June 10 hanging from a tree in Poncitlán Square. Investigators initially ruled it a suicide but walked the claims back after protesters accused them of hastily jumping to conclusions.
Many on social media suspected that the 24-year-old had been lynched, and some accused law enforcement officials of covering it up.
On Thursday, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Commander Christopher Marks told reporters at a media briefing that the evidence supported the conclusion that Fuller committed suicide.
“The Medical Examiner issued their final autopsy report and delivered it to the Sheriff’s Department and deemed this case to be suicide,” said Marks.
“There were no signs of a struggle. No defensive wounds observed and no other signs of trauma visible to Mr. Fuller. Mr. Fuller’s hands were not bound and there were no signs he attempted to remove the ligature from his neck,” Marks continued, according to KNX-1070.
