There's a developing story in Atlanta — that has people all over America on notice. A 20 something year old Black man was found hanging off the MLK Bridge by his neck. The initial report from local authorities was that the man "committed suicide."
But video evidence suggests that he may have been HANGED.
What evidence are we talking about? Well first - the method of hanging. The victim was not handed using a rope, or a belt . . . but he was hanged using a METAL CHAIN.
Second, as you can see in the above video - the man who is reportedly a student at Morehouse College, appears to be wearing his school knapsack.
Atlanta police were called to the 600 block of MLK Drive at about 6:30 p.m. Friday.
But what's MOST suspicious is HOW QUICKLY police determined this man's death to be a suicide. Within HOURS of the body being located - and WITHOUT ANY WITNESSES - police closed the case and classified it as a suicide.
Despite the investigation being QUICK, reports say that:
The preliminary investigation shows the male had a chain wrapped around his neck, Atlanta police Sgt. John Chafee said. The chain was locked in several places and keys to the locks were found in one of the victim's pockets, Chafee said. Investigators canvassed the area and located one person who said they overheard someone yelling "don't do it," Chafee said. The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office has not been able to notify next of kin.
