In the early morning of July 7, officers were alerted to a disturbing and tragic event: a black man was dead, and seen hanging from a tree by a rope in Atlanta, Georgia's Piedmont Park. The male, whose name is yet to be released, was described as being between the ages of 25 and 35.
Police reported that "there was no sign of life from the man and no sign of struggle or foul play and was consistent with a suicide." The Fulton County Medical Examiner agreed. So then why is the FBI investigating this horrific incident?
