“The public needs more answers on the deaths of these two men.
A growing number of residents and officials in Los Angeles County are demanding answers in the death of a black man whose body was discovered hanging from a tree in a park.
Robert Fuller’s body was found early Wednesday in Poncitlán Square in Palmdale, Calif., a commuter city roughly an hour north of Los Angeles. The 24-year-old’s death was deemed a likely suicide based on preliminary findings, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.
Fuller’s family and supporters are pushing back against the department’s assessment, saying his death appears to be a lynching.
