From ABC News:

Puzzling number of men tied to Ferguson protests have died

Six young men with connections to Ferguson protests have died, drawing attention on social media and speculation in the activist community that something sinister is at play

By JIM SALTER Associated Press FERGUSON, Mo. — Mar 17, 2019 7:28 AM ET
Two young men were found dead inside torched cars. Three others died of apparent suicides. Another collapsed on a bus, his death ruled an overdose.

Six deaths, all involving men with connections to protests in Ferguson, Missouri, drew attention on social media and speculation in the activist community that something sinister was at play.

Police say there is no evidence the deaths have anything to do with the protests stemming from a white police officer’s fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown and that only two were homicides. …

If there is one thing we learned from Ferguson, it’s that Black Twitter is never wrong about everything.
