Justice For Danye Jones | Mother says death was not suicide


NBC News reports --  Melissa Mckinnies, Mother of  24-year old Dayne Jones was found dead, hanging by a bed sheet from a tree behind the family home on Oct. 17th. St. Louis Country police rushed to judgement and ruled his death an suicide, despite his family's concerns. 

The family disagrees with the investigation and believes Dwayne Jones was killed in retaliation due to her activism in Ferguson, after the death of Mike Brown.

McKinnies told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that her son was upbeat before his death, not suicidal. She said he didn't know how to tie the knots used in the ligature, and the sheet didn't match sheets from the family home. Jones had packed an overnight bag found on the patio, suggesting that he trusted and had planned to leave the house with the person who killed him, McKinnies said.

IN MEMORY OF DANYE JONES
Danye Jones was laid to rest today after his untimely death on Oct. 17, 2018. He was 24 years old when his life was stolen from him by hatred in St. Louis, MO.

Danye was an upbeat, good-spirited, and caring young man who loved his family and his community. He was looking forward to starting his own business before he lost his life. He was loved by many and his death has devastated his entire community beyond words. We all want justice for him and his loved ones.

I'm a 16 years old from New York. My tweet about Danye Jones had went viral on Oct. 31st, 2018. Upon seeing my tweet, Danye's family had reached out to me and we have been in communication ever since. I had started this GoFundMe all the way from New York because they deserve support, truth, and justice. We should ALL be standing with them during this difficult time.

The funds collected will be going directly to his family to pay for incurred funeral expenses,  the expense of a private autopsy, and help pay for the expense of comprehensive private investigation. This fundraiser has already been set up so that Danye's immediate family has the sole access to withdraw any funds.  Any contribution is greatly appreciated. via Gofundme
