The dead body of a black teen was spotted hanging on a tree in the outdoors of Ehrhardt Elementary School located in Houston, Texas.
The deceased body was found in the parking lot of the Ehrhardt Elementary School according to the Sheriff’s Office of Harris County. Harris County’s Sheriff, however, does not “smell anything fishy” based on the evidence and believes the reason for death can merely be a suicide.
The investigation started at 8 p.m. on Tuesday after the Sheriff’s office received a call from the School. The Sheriff’s Office briefed an official tweet on social media which says “Based on security video, witnesses and other evidence, preliminary indications are the male hanged himself.” They further added “There are currently no signs of foul play. Cause of death is pending an autopsy,” and concluded their statement.
Surprisingly, this is the third case following the trail of similar cases from the last week where again two black men were discovered hanged on the tree not far, just 45 miles away in California. The other two deceased were identified as Robert Fuller, age 24, and Malcolm Harsch, age 38.
